A Black Man’s Path to Race Realism

Larry Murdock, American Renaissance, November 15, 2013

B, (
And where it led.

Never in 1,000 years did I imagine that I would end up the person that I am today: a black race realist—someone who believes IQ is normally distributed and that averages may differ among races the same way other genetic variables do. Over the years, I noticed that people are fired up about this or that aspect of evolution, but that the question of genetic differences in race and IQ were off limits. And after many years of painful experience, I gradually went from “Why not?” to “This is the way it is.”

Two things contributed to my conversion to race realism. The first was my training—I have an MS in chemistry—and the second was a lot of life experience.

To start at the beginning, I grew up in a two-parent family in Michigan, and went to church every Sunday. Both my parents worked at decent jobs with good benefits. One thing that my late father always taught me is that “life is about thinking for yourself and doing what is good, right, and best for you.” A necessary consequence of this was making up my own mind on what was relevant to me.

I graduated from high school in the top 10 percent of my class and was offered a full scholarship at a university in a neighboring state. I graduated, and after taking a break from school, went back to complete a master’s degree.

How did my training help lead to my conversion? A chemist looks at a system, without prejudice, and in a process called abductive reasoning, tries to choose the best explanation. If I had to distill my most life-changing experiences and what I learned from them, they would be as follows:

Going to church (ages 12 to 18)

We went to a small church that was not as most people imagine black churches—no whooping and hollering and fainting. It was a very conservative Church of Christ congregation that did not even allow instrumental music. In my years there I saw a great deal of inept leadership. For example, although the church had ample funds, it took two years to put in a new door because the leadership spent so much time bickering. Even though I was only 13 years old, I spent an afternoon making calls to get prices on the installation on a new door, but that still was not enough to get them take action.

BlackCongregation

At that time I didn’t know it, but I was observing an experiment with a control group. There were two nearby Churches of Christ, one in the same town and one in the town next door. One was white and flourished, and the other was black and collapsed a few years after getting together enough money for a new building.

I thought to myself, “OK. Maybe I’ve had some bad luck and the problem is these particular black people.” When I went to college, I left the church, never to return, but that led to my next experience.

Getting a job (ages 18 to 21)

Like many college students, I needed to work during the summers, so I got a job at a nearby airport. In that county, airport businesses had to have minority ownership, and there were two major concessions at the airport. The one I worked for (let’s call it Company A) sold gifts and the other one, Company B, sold food. The general manager at Company A was black and so were most of the store managers. Much of the management of Company B’s food stalls was also black. What did I see? Disaster.

Although my company had 18 to 20 gift shops, there was not a single day on which every store could open, because employees would not show up for work. There was not a single week in which someone was not led off in handcuffs for stealing. There was not a single week in which someone from Company B did not walk into my store to buy candy and gifts with gift certificates he had stolen right out of the cash register of his store. (The airlines gave customers gift certificates when planes were delayed, which happened a lot. Apparently the managers at Company B thought that stealing vouchers out of the register was not quite the same thing as stealing cash.)

Cash receipts from sales were regularly taken to the central office and put in a cash room. What wasn’t stolen out of the registers by employees would just get stolen right out of the cash room by the loss prevention manager. He lasted only a year, and was fired for stealing tens of thousands of dollars.

It is almost impossible for a store to lose money when it sells at airport prices, but eventually that chain of stores had to downsize because of losses.

I thought to myself, “OK. Maybe I’m just working around the wrong type of black people.” And that led to the next life-changing event.

Finishing my bachelor’s degree (ages 18 to 22)

When I went to college, I noticed that out of 120 chemistry majors, I was one of only two blacks. I noticed that in the “lighter” disciplines, such as ethnic studies, the students got a lot blacker. I spent one college year in England and I took an elective black studies course there on the assumption—correct—that there would be fewer political overtones. When I came back to the US and visited the Black Studies Department, I got a lot of hostility when I suggested that black studies would not help anyone get a job, and that it might be better to learn how to live with all kinds of people. One of the faculty members told me, “Kiss my black ass.”

BlackStudies

I thought to myself, “OK. So maybe I didn’t go to the right school. Maybe I need to go someplace else.” Years later, I went to another school to get my graduate degree, and that led to the next event.

Finishing my graduate degree (ages 25 to 26)

As a graduate student, to make ends meet, I took a job at a filling station several miles from school. It was in a poor area, and about half the patrons were black. At that time, you could buy blunt cigarillos for $2.87 for a pack of five, or you could pay $0.99 for just one. (For those of you who don’t know, some people smoke cigarillos but others cut out the tobacco and fill them with marijuana.) So, night after night, I sold single cigarillos to the same people who paid more to buy them one at a time. Night after night, I swiped Food Stamp cards for black customers to buy one ice cream at a time. Everything that you buy one at a time in a gas station is usually 50 percent more per item than just buying a pack of five, six, or ten, but the math skills needed to make that calculation were too much for my customers.

There was also a lot of shoplifting, and 99 percent of it was by blacks. A common trick was to distract me, by asking for a price check, and then stealing something. It was also common to pump gas and drive off without paying. I called the police a couple of times, and they would go through the motions of telling the perps never to come back to the store again. A week later, the perps would be right back. The police never made any arrests because cops must actually witness the crime. They won’t just take someone’s word for it.

There were a lot of Mexican day laborers, roofers and landscapers, who came to buy things.  Most of them had just come from work and just wanted to get a beer and sit down. They were different from most of the black customers, who didn’t work at all, and were just trying to think of a way to steal something.

Laborers

While I lived in that state, I made a visit to a rheumatologist for a checkup. All the doctors at the hospital were Jewish. Everyone who was mopping a floor or tending a cash register was black.

I thought, “OK. Maybe I need to move to a different country.”

It happened that I had had a Jewish friend who had moved to Japan to work and save money, and through a fortunate series of events I found myself living and working there as an English teacher. Later, I went to Taiwan to do the same work, but the job scheduling was not satisfactory. From there, it was an easy hop to Mainland China, where the work was more abundant and the scheduling was better.

Life in China (since age 26)

I have now lived in China for 11 years, and for the last five, I have been teaching chemistry and writing personal statements for students who need them as part of their applications to get into American colleges. Almost every aspect of living here has been informative from a race-realist point of view, but very negative from a “black” point of view. In this country, everything you see associated with black people is bad. And, of course, how can I fail to understand why Chinese people don’t want to hire me to work for them?

A few observations:

1. Where blacks live. In China, Africans are concentrated in Guangdong Province, which basically makes low-value exports such as shoes and toys. The State Bureau of Foreign Experts, which is the agency that lets foreigners live and work here, does not issue work permits to black people, so the Africans in Guangdong are illegal aliens living in shantytowns. The Guangdong government and the people of the province can’t distinguish African from American or South American blacks, but they don’t want any more of them.

Blacks in Guangzhou, Guangdong’s capital.

Blacks in Guangzhou, the capital of Guangdong.

Jiangsu Province makes electronics, and Shandong makes heavy machinery. In these relatively high-tech areas you can go for weeks without seeing any black people. This is exactly what you would expect: Africans working off the books in low value-added industries.

2. Foreign students. Most Chinese higher education is substandard. This is why so many Chinese students who have the means study abroad. Last year 236,000 Chinese were studying in the United States. However, this does not stop second-rate Chinese universities from accepting foreign students. Some even teach medicine in English to students from abroad.

But if they want to offer low-grade education that not even Chinese would pay for, they have to go somewhere to find idiots to fill up the seats. You guessed it: The first place they go to look for students is Africa!

This is actually worse than it sounds. Most Chinese don’t speak English. The number of Chinese who actually know medicine and can teach it in English is bound to be tiny. Half of all Chinese doctors don’t even have a bachelor’s degree. On the other hand, in 22 African countries, English is an official government language. What this means is that Africans can’t set up schools that function in an official language of their own country, so they go overseas to be taught by people in China who can’t speak English.

3. Jewish Temples. There are only about 14 million Jews in the world, and only about 10 percent of them are Orthodox. Yet, in China there are no fewer than five Orthodox temples and Jewish community centers that serve kosher food. A lot of intelligence went into getting around the Chinese government’s ban on non-approved religions, and getting animals slaughtered in a kosher manner for the very few Jews who keep Kosher.

Jews have set up their community centers as business corporations in order to get the proper licenses. Their leaders have also schmoozed the right people. This takes finesse. Kosher slaughter also takes finesse. There is no law against it, but it takes resourcefulness to find a cooperative livestock dealer and fly in a shochet, or trained kosher butcher. The church I used to attend couldn’t even get a door installed.

4. Development assistance. China now offers a lot of development assistance to Africa. It’s easy to forget that just 55 years ago, something like 30 million Chinese people starved to death in a famine. Also, China was unstable from the middle of the Qing Dynasty—about 1793—until 1976 (the end of the Cultural Revolution). The people had not had a new idea since the Sui Dynasty, that is to say, since the Sixth Century. But even after all that they now manage to build first-class cities.

If you have Chinese people in a fishing village, they will turn it into a city. If you have the same number of black people, it will stay a fishing village. Or if you let them take over a city—Detroit, for example—it will stop from being a functioning, gleaming city and become something more like a fishing village.

Social Media, etc.

1. Facebook is depressing. Probably about 40 percent of my Facebook friends are black, and they share way too much about the minutiae of their lives. You have to read about every single time they pull into McDonald’s. They also come up with about 90 percent of the worst, most poorly reasoned arguments. You name it, I’ve read it: Black Egypt, Marxism, legal pontification on the Trayvon Martin case by people who can’t spell.

2. Trayvon Martin. I’ve argued on Facebook until I was almost blue in the face that when someone attacks you and you fear for your life you are justified in defending yourself. I have also pointed out that most black people are killed by other black people, and that proportionately far more white people are killed by blacks than the other way around. On any given day, about seven black people are killed by other black people. Anyone bright enough to read the statistics from the Department of Justice can find out these things. And there can be no bias in these numbers since the Justice Department is headed by a black man, right?

3. Prislam (prison Islam). Muslims are looking for people of low intelligence to convert. Where do they go to find them? Prison. Who do they find there? Black people.

It just became too much for me. It uses up all your energy to argue with even one unintelligent person. Try arguing with 40 million people, most of whom don’t have it together.

For all these reasons I married a Chinese woman and we have a son. I don’t want him to identify as black. We speak Chinese at home, and I have decided that he can learn English as a second language—maybe after age five. We’ve had his DNA tested, and he is actually more Han Chinese (48.6 percent) than any other race (9.3 percent white, 42.1 percent black).

We are converting to Judaism, and therefore adopting a cultural environment that is as far from black as I can find. My son has options. He can think of himself as strictly Jewish. His names are Hebrew, and can be used in either the Sephardic or Ashkenazi traditions.

Or, he can think of himself as Chinese. Surprisingly, Chinese people have a better attitude towards those they think they are assimilating. My son has a Chinese passport, and if he decides to stay in China and can play the role of someone who accepts the glory of Han culture, he’ll do fine.

Or maybe he can think of himself as American—race unspecified. For his sake, I don’t want him to think of himself as “black,” because that just has too much baggage.

    Black race realists can be perfectly good enemies of our enemies, but they can never truly be our friends much less us.

    That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

    • WR_the_realist

      Black race realists can’t be “us” but I don’t see why they can’t be our friends. Unlike some of the white nationalists in this forum, I see nothing wicked with having friends of other races, including intelligent black people. Certainly I have more agreement with Larry Murdock than I have with any number of white college professors and congressmen. Our biggest enemies are of our own race.

      • John R

        But, you might be able to CONVERT a White liberal over to our way of thinking. You cannot “convert” a black person into a White person. This is about White race survival. Blood is thicker than water.

        • WR_the_realist

          Larry Murdock is far less of a threat to white survival than Nancy Pelosi or Harry Reid.

          • John R

            True. BUT THAT IS THE POINT! The REAL threat to White survival is the Majority “splitters in the ranks” here, and in Europe. THAT is where we must turn back the tide. That is the key to White survival.

          • Laura Dilworth

            How can we possibly turn back the tide?

          • Laura Dilworth

            yes!

        • Laura Dilworth

          It is very difficult to convert a white liberal. However, I noticed that white liberals are often intelligent, productive, family oriented, law abiding, etc

          • Bantu_Education

            Its every bit as difficult to convert a white liberal to race realism as it would be to convert someone’s religion, since being a liberal means being a racial egalitarian – a philosophical stance which flies in the face of logic – ergo, it is a religion in itself.

          • Laura Dilworth

            sometimes i can get a liberal to make concessions privately

        • Noodles

          Liberals won’t listen to him. They will see a poor ‘Uncle Tom’ brainwashed by white supremacists, like that comedy sketch about a blind clan leader who was black but didn’t know it and nobody would tell him , and after he got eye surgery and could see, the first thing he did was divorce his white wife for race mixing. lol

      • KingKenton

        Then why are you here? You can’t have it both ways. Be respectful of a black you encounter in public? Yes. Be civil? Yes. Be his friend? No. Have we not learned anything? One little article from a Black race realist and all the sudden we’re ready to have them be our friends, move into our neighborhoods, and invite them over for a BBQ? Perhaps I have misunderstood what you meant by your usage of “friend”. If so, my apologies.

        • WR_the_realist

          If it was my goal to hate every single black (and every single Jew) I’d be posting on Stormfront, not Amren. The black average is unimpressive, to be sure. But that’s not a reason I can’t find common ground with a highly intelligent black man who is clearly dedicated to the truth, whatever it is. That is my goal too.

          • KingKenton

            If it was my goal to hate every single black (and every single Jew) I’d be posting on Stormfront, not Amren…

            No one is asking you to “hate” any Black or Jewish person. Choosing to not have black “friends” (that you wax so warmly about), does not mean you hate blacks. Your advocacy for having black “friends” sounds little different than calls for tolerance and diversity (your use of the word “hate” is a favorite of diversity mongers). Or the Christian who deludes himself into thinking Jews can be entrusted with positions of influence within a Christian society (yes, I’m Christian [not Christian Identity]).

            If what you are really arguing for is working with black race realists to further the cause of Ethnonationalism, that is an entirely acceptable proposition. Calls for general unity (being “friends”) between Black and White is entirely different matter and incompatible with White Nationalism which is dedicated to separation of Whites and Blacks. So which is it?

            But that’s not a reason I can’t find common ground with a highly intelligent black man who is clearly dedicated to the truth, whatever it is. That is my goal too.

            Finding common ground with a Black person has nothing to do with being his “friend”.

            And what “truth” (your words), is this black race realist dedicated to exactly anyway? Apparently not a race realism which excludes marrying / procreating outside one’s own race. Which is a rather odd and meaningless definition of race realism.

          • saxonsun

            Of course you are right.

        • Funruffian

          I agree. Just because this guy had an epiphany about his race doesn’t quantify me forming a friendship. I appreciate his genuine realism and forthright views. He is just one of those self-loathing Blacks who wants to shed his skin. He may be further to the right side of The Bell Curve than the average Black, but he still is who he is.
          Marrying a China woman and converting to Judaism is pretty bizarre. It really hasn’t anything to do with faith and belief, but rather a frantic excuse to abandon your upbringing and culture. Who can blame him for that?

        • Brian

          Normally I’d agree about drawing this line, but this guy moved to China, so…not our problem.

          • BonusGift

            Let’s introduce a little realism here, what are the odds all of his family intend on staying in China, especially as the ‘world economy’ is falling apart as I write this? I’d handicap that at something approaching zero pretty fast. Also, this guy doesn’t have seem to have the residual logic or honesty to notice that the Chinese are renowned xenophobes and will tend to purge anyone (i.e., non-Han) when any societal pressure is encountered. I admire them for that, but to think (i.e., given current realities) that he and his family are not our problem anymore is not very realistic. He clearly doesn’t understand where economic wealth is derived and assumes that it falls off some global turnip truck where you can covert it to whatever is your heart’s desire (e.g., today he sees that Jews are on top and maybe the Han so I’ll have me one or two of them Chinese Jews and all will be well, etc.).

      • Laura Dilworth

        Tell me about it. The white union stewards and white management @ the post office will almost always back up the minority against whites

      • scottthestrategerist

        As a corollary to that, there’s nothing wrong with mating with a white liberal. Indeed, you’re preventing them from throwing their (our!) genes away by mating with a cool colored person. Here’s a question: if you had a daughter of marrying age, and her two suitors were a young Clarence Thomas and a young Piers Morgan, and she left the choice to you, whom would you chuse? Would you chuse happiness and a good life with a son-in-law whom you’d like (Clarence), but put an end to your genetic line, or would you be willing to have a terrible life but continue your line (Morgan)? For me, it’s Piers Morgan all the way! Happiness is overrated!

    • GOD

      I hear you, but I’ll certainly take a black race realist over a White liberal any day. Ultimately, black race realists are non-factors anyhow. They are so few and far between. White liberals on the other hand…..

    • [Guest]

      >>>Black race realists can be perfectly good enemies of our enemies, but they can never truly be our friends much less us.

      Can a black Jew who is married to a Chinese and whose wish for his mixed-race son is that he be of unspecified race actually be a race realist?

      • http://countenance.wordpress.com/ Question Diversity

        Racial realism is an abstraction, so it’s possible for anyone to be one.

        What he could never be is an ethnonationalist in the way we think of the term.

        The point I was driving at with my first comment above is that we have to get out of this mode of thinking that we need to get permission from some non-white to advocate for white people qua white people. Or that somehow our cause is marginally more valid because some non-white has taken it up.

        • [Guest]

          Thank you. I understand and agree wholeheartedly with that point.

      • ShermanTMcCoy

        I would this so. He recognizes that his own race is a disaster, and is trying to get as far away from it as possible.

        Of course, has he been able to find an intelligent, moral black woman, together, they might have produced equally intelligent offspring.

        Ah, Eugenics. What CAN’T it do?

        • NordicHeritage

          Which is why i don’t understand why so many conservatives are prolife and not prochoice. Hell we should be pushing for more planned parenthoods not less.

          • Pro_Whitey

            I personally prefer the position of the blogger at Unamusement Park. He is pro-life for whites, pro-abortion for everyone else. Yes, the black rate of abortions is substantially higher than the white rate, but that is probably attributable to white men and women being more conscientious about using birth control (call it a pre-abortion). Whites breed too little as it is, so I want to do what I can to discourage them from having abortions. The problem we face is the poison has been well-set in many white women’s minds that the option to slaughter their own children in the womb is a necessary element of self-determination rather than a form of suicide. I do prefer not emphasizing abortion until we have united whites under other banners.

          • Laura Dilworth

            Still, it’s not good for any race to have children out of wedlock. I’m prolife.

          • Sick of it

            Other than religious belief it is still impractical because they have far more kids than they abort whereas we have very few children and abort all too many of them. We use birth control too frequently as well. Look at modern South Africa to see the theory in practice. Getting rid of welfare would be a better, more successful approach.

          • Laura Dilworth

            I can’t see getting rid of welfare, even though I agree w/you.

          • Sick of it

            Technically, I cannot see us stopping the immigration flood either. Thus the many calls for secession. The Federal government wants a whole lot of things that literally jeopardize our lives here in the South.

          • Laura Dilworth

            It’s not gonna be easy to secede. The feds don’t like white working class yankees in the fly over zone either.

          • Johnny Squire

            In a democracy the welfare, just like the poor, will always be with us.

          • Laura Dilworth

            seems that way

          • Johnny Squire

            I agree that getting rid of all governmental charity would be more successful. Government welfare subsidizes the procreation of those incapable of leading productive lives at the expense of those who are capable. The main reason for the exploding populations in the third world is white charity. Ending welfare would see our populations rise and the others fall (after the massive violence of the ensuing riots, of course).

          • Sick of it

            Groups like Doctors without Borders contributed to the population explosion of non-white groups in third world countries who would have otherwise died in droves. One could also honestly say they have contributed to starvation in third world countries worldwide by saving so many who would not be cared for.

          • Johnny Squire

            Those they save medically are then again “saved” by “Feed the World” organisations who receive donations from guilty white donors who are bombarded by gruesome images on their television screens. In my early twenties I was chastised by a girlfriend who thought I was selfish for not signing up for a monthly debit for one of those “feed the African” charities. When I explained to her that her money was spent in vain and that any help sent to countries like Zambia was only keeping despots like Kaunda in power I was rebuked for being “racist”. Sadly, our short relationship did not survive her puritan zeal.

          • Laura Dilworth

            sad. starvation has got to be painful

          • Laura Dilworth

            but given the political climate, ya know gov’t charity won’t end. we just sent a fortune to the phillipines. we’ve got a gazillion welfare programs here

          • GeneticsareDestiny

            I think most conservatives are pro-life not because they think it’s logically better, but because they have an instinctual, gut reaction of disgust at the thought of abortion and find it abhorrent emotionally. It seems to be part and parcel of the conservative mindset, along with feeling disgust at miscegenation, homosexuality, etc.

          • KevinPhillipsBong

            I agree. I’ve heard conservatives in Mississippi brag about how there’s only one abortion clinic in the whole state. It’s that kind of short-sightedness that will be the end of conservatives (in Mississippi and elsewhere).

          • ShermanTMcCoy

            Well, I am pro-eugenics. I am also pro-population control. And pro-border control. As a Christian, I’d rather that people use methods other than abortion, which is a brutal and violent thing. The great tragedy is how many of our women have terminated the lives of what would have been useful, intelligent white children, and how many useless societal parasites continue to be bred.

      • Jackryanvb

        I think he can. He’s starting, joining a distinct caste, varna. There are, were all kinds of unique castes, people in India, South Africa – neither lowest Black /Shudra or White.

        Read the end of Camp of the Saints There was one very funny Indian guy that chose to die with the White resistance.

        • Laura Dilworth

          i’ve got to read it

        • ixObserver

          I just looked up the book on Wikipedia after seeing your post. From a cursory look it does look like the book’s theme is non-white mass immigration to white world played out between French and Indians. The book was written in 1975. What prompted this idea of massive migration from India to France in 75? At the time there was barely any immigration from India.

    • JohnEngelman

      Race realism is not a cause. It is a scientific theory.

    • NeanderthalDNA

      Aw come on. This guy thinks EXACTLY like I would were I Black. I put me and my own before any and all, but…

      Based on his writing and opinion…”behold, a man”…

      I’ve had many “friends” who were Black, including one or two who didn’t mind me saying “n!gg&r” from time to time. I never pushed it though…politeness is very important and White, as is giving all a fair shake.

      Problem is that giving Blacks, as a group, a “fair shake” results in exactly the same results as evil “racism”. What we give them is an unfair shake – unfair to US, of course, advantageous to THEM, and therefore bad for ALL since it’s a never ending drag-down.

      This guy’s a curve blower. They exist and if they think like this guy I’ll begrudge them nothing.

      Pretty rare, by the way.

      With an MS in Chemistry he probably has an IQ of 140ish. I would rather live next door to Larry than to Phil Donahue…or any other white liberal. As I have said before, I am not a racist in the true sense of the word. I am a realist.

      We should never marry nonwhites, no matter how much we like or love them, because white traits are recessive and the only way to protect our existence is to procreate with fellow whites, but our societies can be, and should be, large enough for a few nonwhites who are truly our friends and agree with us on the issues (i.e. a true proposition nation). Only a fool turns down friends! We shouldn’t be fools!

  • Cannot Tell

    I’m thrilled to read the opinions of a fellow black race realist. Maybe someday I’ll write about my journey to race realism and what I’m planning to do to help spread the truth. Unlike Mr. Murdock, my acceptance of HBD resulted from reading books like Why Race Matters by Michael Levin. Personal experience with blacks had nothing to do with it.

    I’m amazed that Mr. Murdock married a Chinese woman. Since becoming a race realist I’ve decided that I can never marry and procreate with a white or East Asian. I don’t think it’d be moral to do so. My children would be more intelligent as a result of such a union while my husband’s offspring would be less intelligent.

    Nevertheless, I wish Mr. Murdock the best of luck in all his future endeavors.

    • KingKenton

      I up voted you for your candor, and awakening. And you are correct to point out the reason one should not marry / procreate outside their own race… It’s a matter of morality. Question… Do you support segregation of the races?

      • Cannot Tell

        I believe in freedom of association and I think if given the opportunity most whites and East Asians would choose not to associate with blacks. So yes, I definitely believe in segregation.

        • KingKenton

      I have known two black women who were race realists. Both were college professors. And then of course there is the departed Elizabeth Wright. I wonder how common this actually is?

      I have always said that there are none I pity more than the intelligent and civil blacks. Theirs is a world that must surely be filled with despair and sadness, knowing that they cannot fit in with other blacks because they cannot abide the abject stupidity of the majority of the race. Neither can they ever really fit in the white world as they know how whites must view blacks if they are honest and intelligent in their discernment.

      A black with an IQ of 130 or above is perhaps the loneliest and most pitiable of all people.

      • Cannot Tell

        I think I speak for us rare black race realists when I say that we appreciate your sympathy.

      • Laura Dilworth

        like Clarence Thomas?

      • Bantu_Education

        “A black with an IQ of 130 or above is perhaps the loneliest and most pitiable of all people.”

        at least 3 SD’s above – and that’s assuming 2 things that I don’t think are altogether true –

        1) the average black American has an IQ of 85 – given that black Africans have an IQ of only 67 I think its probably a few points lower

        2) the SD of their IQ’s is 15 – I suspect its less than that, i.e., their range of IQ’s is more clustered around the average, as is the Asian IQ.

        Assuming both my assertions are correct then the probability of a black having an IQ of 130 or more is about 1 in 100,000 or even 1 per million individuals.

    • Cimon Alexander

      > “My children would be more intelligent as a result of such a union while my husband’s offspring would be less intelligent.”

      This is not necessarily true. You may have more intelligence genes than the average person of your ethnic background (if you are here, that is almost certainly so). If you are as smart as your husband, then congratulations! You won the genetic lottery and you can pass on those genes to your children.

      • Cannot Tell

        My understanding of reversion to the mean is that the children of smart blacks will be less intelligent than the children of smart whites. Arthur Jensen found that when comparing the children of black couples with IQs of 120 to the children of white couples with IQs of 120, the former were not as smart. I believe they averaged a 99 IQ while the white children averaged a 110 IQ.

        Assuming I married a white man with the same IQ as mine (about 127), our children would not be as smart as the children of two white adults with IQs of 127.

  • GeneticsareDestiny

    Very good article, Mr. Murdock! I always enjoy hearing the thoughts of non-white race realists. Your story about the church you attended was quite enlightening. It’s rare to read such nuanced observations about blacks from an insider’s perspective.

    I cannot imagine how frustrating it must have been to grow up as an intelligent black man surrounded by average blacks. I’m a somewhat above-average IQ white person who grew up surrounded by below-average IQ white people, and that was bad enough, but it must have been nothing compared to your daily experiences (especially since you are almost certainly more intelligent than me, considering your Chemistry background).

    I wish you and your family good luck with your life in China.

  • [Guest]

    >>>My son has options.

    If race is real, then his options are largely defined by his racial makeup.

    • Andy

      He’s only 42% black, and that 42% comes from a chemist father whose parents were together and middle class. There’s a good chance he’ll be a bright kid who stays on the straight and narrow.

      • [Guest]

        >>>He’s only 42% black…

        And some towns are only 42% black.

        • M.

          His father is smart. So he’ll most likely be smart, regardless of his race.

          • IstvanIN

            Regression to the mean. Just because dad is smart doesn’t mean sonny will be. And what about mom? Not all Chinese are brilliant and I would be leery of one who would marry a black.

          • GeneticsareDestiny

            He probably will not be as intelligent as his father, but I doubt he’ll be below 100. Even if the mother has below-Chinese-average IQ, and even though the child will regress towards the mean, the father having an IQ of 141 should assure he’ll still be above 100. I’d guess he might end up somewhere around 110-115?

            The only way I could see for the child to have a below-100 IQ would be if the mother were very unintelligent (such as having an IQ below 80 or something) and I highly doubt that this is the case.

  • pcmustgo

    Well welfare certainly encourages all the wrong people to breed and even if only culture matters, is a dysgenics program, mostly for Blacks. Paying the least educated, most criminal people to breed is bad news even if one does not believe in genetics.

      Not only that, but the last four paragraphs of the entire unlikely story are about as far away from the race-realist viewpoint as they could possibly be. I’m not buying any of it.

  • John R

    While I generally respect this man, and his points of view, I have to say, let us not get carried too far with this. We Whites must get out of the habit of seeking affirmation from non-Whites; we need only vindication from our own. And, secondly, I don’t like the idea of this race mixing, even if it is with a Chinese. At least he moved to China, and not in a White area in the US. But, good or not, the blacks belong with their own kind.

    • [Guest]

      I agree, John. Concerning your first point: I find it bothersome when supposed race realists fall all over themselves praising Thomas Sowell and Walter Williams when they express reasonable sentiments concerning race. We don’t need a nod of approval from any black man, nor is our position made any stronger just because 0.05 percent of blacks profess to agree with it.

      • M.

        It does make our case stronger though. Especially given that White race-denialists would more open our views if they came from a black man.

  • Carney3

    I’m a bit sad for this man. While it’s fine for him to realize the hard realities of race, it wasn’t necessary for him to reject his racial identity and try to erase it in his descendants.

    The late Elizabeth Wright, and her “Issues and Views” magazine were examples of blacks who understood and accepted reality without going to that level. Surely he could have found an acceptable black woman if he had looked hard enough – any professional and intelligent black man essentially has his pick of his entire race’s females.

    • Jackryanvb

      Disagree. Racially realistic Black American men of high intelligence are persecuted in the USA, same as we are persecuted. Persecuted men have very hard time getting mates.

  • Garrett Brown

    This will be very controversial. I look forward to reading the discussions in the comments this weekend.

    • Ed

      There are quite a few of us lurking around although few of us exhibit the self-loathing this man does.

      • Jackryanvb

        Ed, do you have any practical suggestions for how a decent Black race realist can survive, have any type of decent job, social standing in America these days? My take is that refuges like Conservative Churches and Conservative politics are no longer safe places for decent race realist Blacks.

        • Ed

          You’d be correct. Although in my case it helps that my parents are African. There is a general loathing of African American culture so my views are not so out of place. Also Africans are more tolerable of differing viewpoints. If I disagree with something going on in my parents’ country no one will say I’m not “Black” or a sellout as a result.

          • Jackryanvb

            I ve noticed a similar positive mindset in honest, hard working Nigerian cab drivers here in Chicago. They don t have a chip on their shoulder, plus they have to deal with the real threat of Blacks Americans robbing them. Proximity to Black Americans robbing them, that tends to lead to race realism.

          • WR_the_realist

            While I believe that a substantial part of the differences we see among the various races are genetically determined, it is obvious that culture plays an important role. I do often see African immigrants, who are 100% black, working hard to make a living and get ahead. They usually aren’t rocket scientists but they do the best with what they’ve got. It’s the American blacks, who typically have about a 20% white ancestry, who whine and complain about how white racists are holding them back.

            American popular culture is particularly odious. It may have its worst effect on blacks but whites are certainly be affected as well.

  • Daniel Schmuhl

    I’m ok with black race realists, but I’m not going to excessively praise them either. I am not very optimistic about the prospects for black race realism simply because the racial science stuff takes an above average IQ to thoroughly understand and because most black people are arrogant.

    • OhWow

      I think it’s amazing to see black race realists. It’s like the white buffalo. So rare. Of course IQ is on a continuum, so there will always be the very few blacks who “get it”. The majority who don’t will always be there too.

      I never would have been on a site like this only a few years ago. But similar to this man, my life experience and education (finishing an MS program myself) have allowed the truth to free me from any biases and liberal indoctrination within the higher education system. The more education and life experience you have, the more obvious things become. Liberals say “You can’t generalize!” until they’re blue in the face. Want to know the best comeback to that? Tell them, “Actually, I can generalize. Generally, Florida is warmer than New York. Generally, the sky is blue. Generally, Chemistry is harder than Black Studies. Generally, men prefer larger TV’s to smaller TV’s”. All they have to do is take it one step further: “Generally, blacks have low IQ”.

      • Franklin_Ryckaert

        And generally liberals are deluded.

    • Jack Burton

      What’s there to be optimistic about. He’s just an honest race mixer who admits he doesn’t like his own race and that’s why he has an Asian wife.

      This is just another example that “race realism” does not necessarily mean racial preservation, it may in fact be counterproductive to that end. Mongolophilia and race realism are practically synonymous.

  • Spartacus

    Nope. Their entire history was cruelty, long before the White man set foot in the sub-sahara. They’ve always lived like animals, and always will .

  • Funruffian

    If you have Chinese people in a fishing village, they will turn it into a city. If you have the same number of black people, it will stay a fishing village. Or if you let them take over a city—Detroit, for example—it will stop from being a functioning, gleaming city and become something more like a fishing village.
    I agree with about 90% of his article. However, he is being a bit kind in this quote. The Black fishing village would transform into a dilapidated harbor ridden with pollution and disease.

    • WR_the_realist

      True. There are a vast number of fishing villages that are more pleasant than Detroit.

    • OhWow

      Agreed. On Long Island before it became more influenced by nearby NYC, along the shores were small, working class fishing villages. They were no Beverly Hills, but they were very nice places to live and grow up.

    I’ve worked in the same convenience store environment that you have. Your comments about cigarillos really hit dead on. I think they only get one at a time, though, because they know their friends will either keep bugging them for one or just steal the whole pack. And yes – they can’t do the damn math. And there’s a lot of what I call “negro crazy.” People who are negro crazy have a drama playing in their heads and think everyone is supposed to play their part in it. And if they don’t they’re idiots.

    (Uhm… you do realize I have a big time genius IQ, right?!)

    Typically that drama is veeeery dark.

    My work in a black neighborhood irrevocably turned we away from Martin Luther’s “dream.” This week a fellow worker said his was glad people in my generation were dying off since we were so full of hate. But I’m 48. I grew up after King and Malcolm X. When I was a kid the biggest hits on TV were M.A.S.H. and All in the Family. “We” were going to “win!”

      My paternal uncle & his wife had 6 kids. Five of the children seemed to be solidly on the right side of 100 IQ, with the youngest son anywhere from 2 to 3 standard deviations above that. The first born was an idiot (figuratively speaking, not literally). He was a not-too-bright starving musician. He never attended college even though he could have gone for free at the prestigious private university where his dad was vice-president. He was living in a garage apartment behind his parent’s house at age 50. The sixth and last child graduated first in his law school class and became a state assistant attorney general and a multimillionaire. The four siblings in my family also demonstrate a similar IQ spread, with 1 brother clearly the brightest and 1 sister clearly the dumbest.

  • JustAsianGirl

    Wow. This guy really hates himself!

    • WR_the_realist

      Why? Imagine a world where the media, educators, politicians, and all prominent people publicly professed their sincerely held belief that men are no more prone to violence than women. Now suppose that a man, initially accepting these beliefs, kept finding evidence to the contrary. He notices that all the gang members in the tough part of town are male. He finds that 80% of the murder suspects in his city are male. He notices that special forces units are always male. He notices that professional fighters are almost always male. And so on. So he reluctantly concludes that the old “sexist” beliefs are correct after all — men tend to be more violent than women. Does that mean that he hates himself for being a man? Or that he’s just going to accept reality and continue to lead his own life as best he can?

      • JustAsianGirl

        He ran to china to pollute their blood quanta and them converted to Judaism. He is running from himself. In self disgust – he isn’t a race realist.

        He doesn’t even mention the other successful black scientist. Why? He is only focused on his personal self disgust with identifying being black.

        Jewish , half black Chinese in china. Sounds cynical to me.

      • John R

        Thank you! Your analogy pretty much hits the nail right on the head. We accept that men are different than women, hence higher rates of crime are committed by males. But we persist with social policies based on the completely non-proven assumption that all races are equal. This is insane.

        • Franklin_Ryckaert

          Well, modern feminism is based on just that crazy idea : that there are no fundamental differences between men and women. There are no fundamental differences between heterosexuals and homosexuals either according to liberalism (hence homosexuals should be able to “marry” and adopt children). Liberalism is denial of reality which is the main characteristic of insanity.

        • IstvanIN

          I actually had an argument with a women at work who was insulted that I thought men were more violent than women. She is a very liberal feminist, though married with three fine sons. I dropped the conversation very quickly.

    It is so rare to hear about a black person like this, educated in a difficult science, articulate and a realist. Then in the 4th to last paragraph I read his son is 9.3% White. Since the mom is Chinese, apparently the author is around 20% White. Bingo!

    • Jack Burton

      American blacks are on average 15-20% White, this is no surprise. Some rap artists and athletes have been tested publicly and to their surprise they’re only 70-80% African.

  • Alucard_the_last

    The nig…(sigh) African-American would be no where if it weren’t for the self-loathing white liberal. They are just too stupid to rise to a position of power without the highly racist, affirmative action.
    Next time you talk to a liberal, ask them what neighborhood they live in and that way you’ll know where the all-white neighborhood is.

    • John R

      Good point. But you don’t even need to go that far: The black people of the world would be nowhere if it were not for White, Western civilization, period. By now, the Arabs, Chinese, or whoever, would have either enslaved them all, or just killed them off for their land and resources.

  • Luca

    Unfortunately, there are too many Whites who reason and think in “unscientific terms”. We call them Liberals and they apply utopian, agenda-driven, policies when they are in power or when they vote.

    Their powers of reason are akin to cult followers.

  • Laura Dilworth

    ethnostate?

    • Pro_Whitey

      If you are asking about the definition of the term, my understanding is that it means a country run by and for members of a particular race. Kind of like Israel is run by and for Jews, although they have non-Jews in their population. Many commenters here think an ethnostate for whites is the only way whites can reasonably be sure of being dragged down by black and drown dysfunction, as is currently happening in the U.S. today. But for the terrible decision not to colonize freed slaves following the American Civil War (colonize meaning, getting them the hell out of the U.S.A.), the U.S. would have been, at least by the mid-1960s, more of a white ethnostate than it was (about 90% white back then). One can argue that the U.S.A. was largely a white ethnostate, as our naturalization laws provided from 1790 to 1954 that only free white persons could become naturalized citizens of the U.S.A.

      • Laura Dilworth

        thanks. i don’t think it’s realistic to expect one now.

  • John R

    True, good point. But, more likely,
    some Whites will be happy with the new black “ally” they have, and,
    over time, start thinking: “Gee, not all the blacks are bad, see, I know a
    good black guy.” Then, what do you have? The seeds of White guilt and liberalism
    coming back. Only use black allies as much as you can, but remember to
    ultimately protect your own.

      Race realism and White pride do not depend on believing that every Black is bad. I can be proud to be White and desire a White society while admitting that some individual Blacks have high ability, good morals and so forth.

    I do not hear self hate in your words, and I absolutely do not make a moral or ethical judgement regarding your having jumped ship. You’re trying to marry up—I cannot hold that against you; it is what every normal living organism tries to do.
    As you were once a Christian, I will leave you with these lines from the Bible which I hope will fortify you:
    Fear of God (self knowledge) is the beginning of wisdom.
    The truth will set you free.
    Seek ye your own salvation.
    I consider you an ally and inasmuch as you support the continuation of White Civilization, I likewise wish you and your family every success and happiness in life.

  • Franklin_Ryckaert

    If his son is 9,3% white, then he himself must be 18,6% white. I won’t say “that explains it all” because an IQ of 141 is exceptional also for Whites. He must come also from an intelligent black ancestry. Be it as it may, I don’t think it was a wise decision of his to marry a Chinese woman and to adopt the Jewish religion. That will only add to the confusion of identity for his child. An highly intelligent black person may be lonely, but he has no identity problem. Such a person could play a leadership role among his own people.

    • Bantu_Education

      I would be wary of an organisation that charges as much as $400 for an IQ test. I think the results would be er, “massaged” – everyone wants to believe they are smarter than they are and there are a lot of organisations who will take advantage of that. No disrespect to Mr Murdoch but I seriously doubt his IQ is 141, more like 125 judging from his writing and his career choice. Still thats not to be sneezed at, its almost 2 SD above the white average.

  • Jackryanvb

    Interesting read. In the 1980 s when the Reagan era inspired hope for Conservative change for Black America, this guy might have gone Thomas Sowell style Conservative, married Black and stayed in. America, now that’s not an option. He has to go to China, marry Chinese, convert to Judaism. All of us might start considering other options like moving to Chile, or marrying higher caste Hindus. Let’s see if BRA America ,Neo Con Conservative Inc lets us meet next year, share a meal together in the state park in Tennessee.

  • panjoomby

    thank you for sharing your experiences & your unassailable reasoning – from observation to hypothesis. to have ended up in china means you have the true american spirit of seeking out & forging a home in a new place (except you “went east, young man”:) + forging a different religious background is itself very american. you sir, are a chemist-american who happens to live in china:) i wish you & your family well. what you are doing represents the true american spirit & its legacy. ps: “prislam” — nice!

    You don’t know the half of it, especially if you are raised in a substantially Black neighborhood or attend a school with a lot of Blacks. You have to spend your teen years acting dumb just to fit in socially with other Blacks. This stunts your intellectual development and if you fall into the wrong crowd maybe even prison or death.

    If you make it to university, you will be surrounded by middle class pro-Black radical types (ie Toure or Melissa Harris-Perry) who think you’re cool because you grew up in the hood. They expect you to sign on to every stupid cause they can think of to prove how down they are with “real” Black people.

    If you graduate with a degree in a non-soft major, recruiters will view you with suspicion. Are you really this smart? Here answer this or that stupid question. If you manage to pass the gauntlet and get hired, your White & Asian colleagues think you are an unqualified affirmative-action. You will get questions such as “Where are you from?” or comments such as “You’re smart”, gee thanks.

    Things get better though. You begin to earn more money. Your dating options improve and life goes on.

    We’re not gonna get an ethnostate. Besides, there is a mutual need between whites/nonwhites. Whites need cheap labor and nonwhites would eventually gravitate to the white state for work.

    • kyle

      We can automate everything. We can invent new energy sources, and we can engineer new infrastructure to consume much less power. lastly, we can get smart about what we eat, and overhaul the food industry. We can do all of that, all it will take is hopes and dreams, and positive attitudes. The biggest problem today is that not enough people dream, and not enough people maintain positive attitudes in the face of adversity.

    I was raised in a liberal home in Chicago. I attended church w/blacks, most of whom were well adjusted. However, they tend to vote Democrat, side w/Trayvon Martin…And the church was somewhat legalistic.

    People like Murdock, Clarence Thomas, etc. are usually despised in the black community

  • Jackryanvb

    Larry what is your experience with mixed race men? Mixed race women? My experience is most mixed race men are more hateful towards White men, want to argue, compete, fight with White men, bed as many White women as possible. They have higher IQ to compete, do well, so they see the masses of poor low IQ Blacks as just like them, only they are on the bottom because of White racism. Mix race men like Harry Belefonte and Brian Gumble go this way, go for ANC hate Whitey politics.

    Barack Obama has a lot of this, had to prove he was really Black, African enough.

    Mixed race women don ‘t seem to have these issues and generally like being in Whiter places.

    • Jack Burton

      They have the savagery of blacks and the neuroticism of Whites/Jews, and both groups hate them. That’s a terrible mix.

  • IstvanIN

    If only more blacks thought this way perhaps the black problems of violence, crime, illegitimacy, low achievement and indolence might be solved. The only way to solve a problem is to face reality.

    • Jack Burton

      If only more blacks thought what way, miscegenating with non-blacks? It makes no difference if the race mixer is pro-black or anti-black. This black person is just using a different strategy to assimilate with the host population.

      • Bossman

        Blacks are part of the human family. Are you saying that blacks are so inferior that they should not miscegenate with any other race? Is that science or even logic?

  • WASP

    I can understand why Mr. Murdock converted to Judaism, but his son really is not a Jew. I don’t believe he would be accepted as such in Israel. I think the Murdock family would be better off staying in China and Mr. Murdock’s son identifying as Chinese. In the US he’d just be another Black or confused racially-mixed person. I’d like to keep this country majority White as long as possible, so please stay in China and good luck.

    • WR_the_realist

      Actually, if you are genuinely a Jew by religion you do have a “right of return” to Israel, no matter what your race, despite the fact that none of your ancestors ever got near the place. Of course some of your Israeli neighbors might object to you.

    • Jackryanvb

      He’s not trying to be accepted as a Jew in Israel. He’s trying to be accepted as a high IQ, highly educated non threatening minority in China and to escape violent, negative Black America.

      I think it’s a good choice.

      • WASP

        Yes, you’re right; it’s better that Mr. Murdock and his family stay in China. As far as the conversion to Judaism, I was actually referring to his son, that if one day the son decided to emigrate to Israel, I didn’t really think he would be accepted as a Jew, certainly not by all.

        • Jackryanvb

          I agree. But, history suggest that Israel, the Middle East will always be a dangerous place, contested and in conflict. This intelligent Black writer is looking for a safe place to live for himself and his son. He is making decisions about religion, where to live in accordance with racial, religious, cultural realities.

          I think conversion to Judaism, living in a safe part of China – good choice.

          White Americans need to start making similar decisions as we have lost large parts of North America, the British Isles and Western Europe.

  • ViktorNN

    Your view is unpopular here on Amren, but I tend to agree with you.

    Murdock could choose to be a voice for a kind of black racial consciousness based on truth rather than politically correct leftist dogma. Instead he’s taking a pretty extreme individualistic point of view which seems to be about starting a process of converting his genetic legacy from all black to Chinese and possibly Jewish. An effort which I suppose is understandable, but at the same time a bit strange.

    Wouldn’t a positive race realist based eugenics program for blacks be based on the idea of getting the best and brightest blacks to reproduce while trying to prevent the worst and least smart from doing so? Wouldn’t this be the better approach rather than to simply trying to breed out black DNA and the black race altogether?

  • Jack Burton

    Any black that miscegenates is obviously a race realist, they know other races are superior. The idiots are the non-blacks who mix with them.

    • Laura Dilworth

      don’t black entertainers/sports stars often marry white women?

  • Jack Burton

    It means the mother is less than 100% Mongloid, doesn’t necessarily mean she’s 97.2%. The amount of admixture contributed isn’t always exactly half of each group, it’s random.

    East Asians aren’t perfectly pure Mongoloid in case people have that false belief. East Asia and Europe both have small amounts of admixture on average. Large populations are not pure, but small enclaves and individuals are pure.

  • Jack Burton

    If your child is less than 50% East Asian then she has a small amount of admixture, most likely from a Caucasoid source, European or West Asian.

    Avi Goldberg is the name of a a real Jewish-Canadian sociologist. By using his name you arouse the suspicion that your whole story is made up by Mr Goldberg himself. The account of your conversion to Judaism doesn’t make your story more plausible, I must say.

  • KevinPhillipsBong

    It’s interesting that the US education racket maintains the view that all blacks are potential chemists. Yet when the US actually gives rise to a black chemist, he finds the US an intolerable place to live. This says something about our education system, no?

    Not really. He told his son that life is about 4 things:
    1. Thinking for yourself
    2. Doing what is good
    3. Doing what is right
    4. Doing what is best for you

    He did not say that 1-3 are only of value in service to #4. I don’t see any real problem with the dad’s advice.

  • IstvanIN

    it would be interesting to see a body or nation of the higher IQ Blacks form which turned their backs on the rest.
    It would better if the high IQ blacks could somehow become the leaders of the rest, but it seems the average black is attracted more to the thug than the intellectual. Perhaps a high IQ black nation could serve as an example to the rest? Or would it just be invaded and overwhelmed by the others?

    • http://independent-british-nationalist.blogspot.com/ British Activism

      I don’t really know. Not that it would ever happen anyway, but I was just kind of considering what might happen if they were all collectivised into a nation, instead of being brought down and ‘mixed back in’ to the ones who are not capable of higher civilisation. Give it a few hundred years and maybe they will evolve to a standard of life much better than what we know would otherwise ensue.

      I agree that if such an unlikely thing was to happen, they would be under threat from being overwhelmed by those on their periphery and beyond, who would be seeking a “better life”. But as long as a White civilisation is present, I think they will all just stick like magnets to us as usual, instead of showing us that they can make it on their own.

      I had to laugh at a recent BBC radio 4 show which proposed the ideas of these new super-cities of the future and how things could be started again from scratch to be orderly and high tech.

      Not one of them discussed demographics and what would happen if Blacks were to populate one of these freshly built super-cities. It was all taken as a given that with this fresh start and everything worked out and ready on a plate, the population would prosper and enter into some new age of greatness. LOL.

      The way things are going, I think the idea or fantasy is ridiculous. Good job they weren’t being truly serious with it, it was just a discussion and scientific/technology slot.

      • Bantu_Education

        “I had to laugh at a recent BBC radio 4 show which proposed the ideas of these new super-cities of the future and how things could be started again from scratch to be orderly and high tech.”

        I don’t know exactly what type of new super-cities they were discussing but I think the idea of new city-states on leased land – as per Paul Romers “Charter Cities” (though he has liberal ideas) could be the salvation of the white race, as they would enable voluntary segregation by default, so to speak. I have been thinking and writing about this very idea for many years and I think the time is ripe.

        • http://independent-british-nationalist.blogspot.com/ British Activism

          There is a popular sentiment gathering pace that looks towards rejecting current society and instead of working within it to bring about change, to create a parallel or superior way ahead. I have seen it expressed with libertarian groups right through to we white nationalists with their PLE intentions of starting new.

          (Western Spring UK are one such group that I am supporting at the present time).

          Super cities would probably be the end result of a mass collective, or alternatively, perhaps an idea from the outset that might be looked at if there were sufficient people to cast them.

          I was certainly not laughing at the concepts in themselves or the technology minded thoughts behind them, it was just that the speakers completely ignored the social, racial and human realities as to why many places are presently crippled.

    “2. He married into the Asian gene pool because it is better.”
    Ok, I can see this. Breeding up, as it were. You want smart kids.
    “3. He is choosing Judaism because the average IQ there is 117.5″
    I don’t get this. The mean IQ for Ashkenazi Jews is high due to the religious tradition that, over thousands of years, selected for the most intelligent. Converting to Judaism does not give your IQ a boost. Am I missing something?

  • nunyabidnessfoo

    Who am I to judge whom another person chooses to marry or what religion they choose to follow?

    It all boils down to what and where are the best genes. Then we can remediate undesirable traits.

    I have read Gedahlia Braun’s (Eugene Valberg) very interesting manuscript – I even had a long phone chat with him about year 2000 when I first got interested in race realist studies. It was through him that I learnt about Amren. He was living in Johannesburg – I much later heard with a black woman. What happened to him?

  • Bantu_Education

    Really? Then how come Africans blame it on white colonialism?

  • http://tmasierrahills.blogspot.com/ tma_sierrahills

    Since all races but whites have countless self-interest groups, seems as though there would be various black professional societies, such as for physical scientists, where high IQ blacks could find each other for some mutual support. In any case, a very interesting story. Thank you for telling it.

  • David Sims

    Once in a while you find a smart black. The IQ distribution for blacks (actually, mulattoes) born in the United States is normal at 85±12.4. The fraction, f, of this group having an IQ higher than μ is found from

    f(μ) = ½ − [σ√(2π)]⁻¹ ∫(x̄,μ) exp{ −[(x−x̄)/σ]²/2 } dx

    where σ=12.4 and x̄=85. So 1 in 9 blacks has an IQ over 100. One in 46 blacks has an IQ over 110. One in 420 blacks has an IQ over 120. One in 7030 blacks has an IQ over 130. One in 217709 blacks has an IQ over 140, the minimum IQ for genius.

    Meanwhile, the distribution of IQ in US resident whites is 103±16.4, meaning that one white in 83 has an IQ over 140 and is a genius.

    Source for averages: “Thirty Years of Research on Race Differences in Cognitive Ability,” J. Philippe Rushton and Arthur R. Jensen, in Psychology, Public Policy and Law, Vol. 11, No. 2, pp. 235-294. Obtained from National Longitudinal Survey of Youth, a 12-year study involving 11878 youths, including 3022 blacks.

        No, I’m using my real name here. When I was working for Dr. Pierce in the National Alliance, I was using Jerry Abbott as a pen name. And, also no, I’m not a genius. At IQ 133 (by Raven’s Advanced Progressive Matrices in May 2007), I fall short of that category by a few points.

  • watling

    You can substitute “the UK” for “Canada” in sentence two, and “London” for “Toronto” in sentence three and your comment is equally valid, which is the point you were making in the final sentence. It is inconceivable that all western nations should tread the same suicidal path simultaneously without it being centrally coordinated.

    Yeah, OK I understand you not wanting others to convert to Judaism to become “Jews” in the interest of starting new, better lives in new places, to become “new people”, change their race, change their nation etc.

    But, be honest – this a tactic Jews have been doing for a long time – moving to new non Jewish areas/countries – changing their last names to blend in with the locals, confuse the truth that they are Jews and have a different history, different agenda.

    The Bolshevik commander of the Soviet Red Army – Leon Trotsky (sounds like a “Russian”) was originally named “Lev Davidovich Bronshtein”

    Karl Marx – sounds like a solid “German” Karl.

    Or then there is the American tough guy Right wing talk show host Michael Savage. His original name was “Michael Weiner” back when he was a 1960s Leftist New Yorker. Somehow, I doubt Michael would have a large White Conservative audience for “the Weiner Nation.

    How about Comedy Central’s Jon Stewart? Sounds like a Scottish nobleman. His real name Jonathan Stuart Leibowitz;

    A truly wise man knows that his only TRUE friends are those who stand for the same things as he does. A black “race realist” can never be our friend. He is only someone that can come to us and look for approval. He is just being black, he is looking for emotional “gibs”. He will never stand for what we do.

      I see that happening to the mulattos I know, confusion and rootlessness. White mother – black father, absentee. The difference here is that Mr. Murdoch seem to take responsibility for the upbringing of his children. I believe his son will be well off.

    Last I checked, Han Chinese and Jews were flooding White European and diaspora countries, not the other way around. Ridiculously bad analogy.

    There is far more to race than mere IQ.

  • Bardon Kaldian

    I’m afraid the only “solution” is genetic engineering on mass scale: “bleaching” of blacks (and others) & helping create more healthy and functional individuals, regardless of race. It sounds sci-fi, but I guess it will be possible in next 20 or so years. In the meantime … ugh.

    • hkq999

      Why would they have to be bleached? And I highly doubt that’s ever going to happen…

  • puffdaddy

    Wow. I guess Mr. Murdock feels safe saying this from China, because if he said it here something bad would happen to him. Good luck to him and Godspeed.

  • ixObserver

    The handicap of African genes which he obviously recognizes is the reason he tried to get as far away from it as possible (what’s impossible is impossible that doesn’t mean you never try if trying is the only option left) and in his son’s case he tried his best to even beat (to whatever extent) the genetic handicap by marrying a non-black.

    I don’t see anything superficial here but I do see desperation rather . As far as White perspective of the ‘other’ goes, with many of you, it is a “damned if you damned if you don’t ” situation.
