    It is quite ridiculous to separate out Askhenazi jews from the rest of whites. There IQs should simply be merged into that of other whites, which of course, because of the low numbers of Ashkenazi jews, this would make about zero difference to white IQ.

    Separating out Askhenazi jews is as ridiculous as separating out Hong Kong people as a separate group from Chinese in general.

    Note also that the Irish and  South Europeans like Serbs, Croats, Greeks, have IQs in the low 90s, about the same as that for Hispanics and Eskimos.

    Central European and Eastern European countries hover around the mid-90s.

    I doubt that the average IQ of all whites (those whites who are considered as whites by Mr Taylor), would hit 100.

    Mr Taylor says all other groups have a strong sense of racial identity, that whites lack.

    Utter rubbish.

    Chinese do not identify with Japanese who do not identify with Koreans who do not identify with Vietnamese.

    You have Asian countries, including Vietnam, begging the US to come into the South China Sea to deter what they see to be Chinese aggression.

    And the Chinese are so race conscious, so much into racial identity that the recent mainland Chinese blockbuster on the Nanjing massacre, heavily promoted by the chinese government, has as its protagonist a white man (Christian Bale) rescuing a bevy of chinese beauties!

    Taylor is perhaps referring only to identity politics within some Western countries themselves. But it is natural that minorities tend to group together for common interests, in the say way the Irish did, the Italians did, even the German Americans did. There is nothing sinister about that whatsover, and these groups are there mainly to advance equality, not to be superior over whites or to take things off whites.

    White identity politics in the US is as ridiculous as Han identity politics in China.

      The Chinese are “so race conscious”. We must remember this if you post here again on “white” racism.

    It’s quite unfortunate that the YouTube account featuring this video has been terminated.

    If you ask a Mexican, what LaRaza means; the answer will be:  The Race; or The Bronze Race.

    As for John Liu; both posts are a bunch of mumbo-jumbo; which I do not have the time, or inclination to fact check (I have a hunch; they wouldn’t  fact check above 40%).

    But, even if you give them 100% credibility; they do nothing to refute Taylor’s video.  They simply nit-pick; minor points.

    I am going to buy this guys book; for our home school family reading assignment.

    Wrong.  “La raza” means “the race”.  “La gente” means “the people”.
    Educate yourself.

    There cannot be any such thing as a white identity, or a white history month, for the very same reason there cannot be any such thing as a straight pride parade. In a white identity parade, can you imagine the German fascists and the Jewish Zionists and the Greek leftists marching together? What would you do with the many Arabs who are far more proud of being pale than all other Whites, but show a sexual behaviour even more obnoxious and a general intelligence even more mediocre than most Black cultures of Africa, and never developed any riches of their own except through pillage and speculation? Would you have the Casanovas and the Italian saints march together in a straight pride parade? What can be done though is opposing the gay phenomenon with utmost force as a form of witchcraft to extort public goods by the means of sexual energy, what can be likewise done is opposing the Black entitlement phenomenon as a form of black magic and promotion of sheer sexual immorality most contrary to the principles of all sound religious traditions in the world. What can be done is to present the Black thing for what it is, another kind of sexual perversion and perverse sexual identity in its own right claiming of the biological types it is most prevalent among.
