Does China Have Less Censorship than the US?

Jared Taylor, American Renaissance, April 12, 2019

A year ago, we posted a video on YouTube called “What is Race Realism?” It was a careful analysis of the evidence showing that human races are not equivalent and interchangeable. For example, it explained why it is overwhelmingly likely that genes help explain why East Asians are, on average, more intelligent than whites who are, on average, more intelligent than Hispanics or blacks. I think the video is pretty good: calm, convincing, scientific, nicely illustrated.

Of course, anything about race differences is forbidden knowledge, so YouTube put the video in “restricted mode.” This is how it treats anything it thinks despicable but not quite so despicable as to merit a full-scale ban; you can still watch it — at least for now.

Today, a friend sent me a version that is circulating on the internet with Chinese subtitles. I was amused for two reasons: Forbidden knowledge may not be so forbidden in other countries, and unlike white people, the Chinese don’t seem to mind being told they are smarter than other folks. Whatever happened to Oriental despotism — and to Western enlightenment?
