I Don’t Feel Your Pain

Jason Silverstein, Slate, June 27, 2013

George Zimmerman followed Trayvon Martin because he perceived him as dangerous. The defense argues he was, the prosecution argues he wasn’t. No one, of course, argues that Zimmerman approached Martin with kindness, or stopped to consider the boy as anything other than suspicious, an outsider. Ultimately Zimmerman shot and killed Martin. A lack of empathy can produce national tragedies. But it also drives quieter, more routine forms of discrimination.

Let’s do a quick experiment. You watch a needle pierce someone’s skin. Do you feel this person’s pain? Does it matter if the person’s skin is white or black?

For many people, race does matter, even if they don’t know it. They feel more empathy when they see white skin pierced than black. This is known as the racial empathy gap. To study it, researchers at the University of Milano-Bicocca showed participants (all of whom were white) video clips of a needle or an eraser touching someone’s skin. They measured participants’ reactions through skin conductance tests—basically whether their hands got sweaty—which reflect activity in the pain matrix of the brain. If we see someone in pain, it triggers the same network in our brains that’s activated when we are hurt. But people do not respond to the pain of others equally. In this experiment, when viewers saw white people receiving a painful stimulus, they responded more dramatically than they did for black people.

The racial empathy gap helps explain disparities in everything from pain management to the criminal justice system. But the problem isn’t just that people disregard the pain of black people. It’s somehow even worse. The problem is that the pain isn’t even felt.

A recent study shows that people, including medical personnel, assume black people feel less pain than white people. The researchers asked participants to rate how much pain they would feel in 18 common scenarios. The participants rated experiences such as stubbing a toe or getting shampoo in their eyes on a four-point scale (where 1 is “not painful” and 4 is “extremely painful”). Then they rated how another person (a randomly assigned photo of an experimental “target”) would feel in the same situations. Sometimes the target was white, sometimes black. In each experiment, the researchers found that white participants, black participants, and nurses and nursing students assumed that blacks felt less pain than whites.

But the researchers did not believe racial prejudice was entirely to blame. After all, black participants also displayed an empathy gap toward other blacks. What could possibly be the explanation for why black people’s pain is underestimated?

It turns out assumptions about what it means to be black—in terms of social status and hardship—may be behind the bias. In additional experiments, the researchers studied participants’ assumptions about adversity and privilege. The more privilege assumed of the target, the more pain the participants perceived. Conversely, the more hardship assumed, the less pain perceived. The researchers concluded that “the present work finds that people assume that, relative to whites, blacks feel less pain because they have faced more hardship.”

 Consider disparities in treatment for pain. We’ve known for at least two decades that minorities, primarily blacks and Hispanics, receive inadequate pain medication. Often this failure comes when people need help the most. For example, an early study of this disparity revealed that minorities with recurrent or metastatic cancer were less likely to have adequate analgesia. Racial disparities in pain management have been recorded in the treatment of migraines and back paincancer care in the elderly, and children with orthopedic fractures. A 2008 review of 13 years of national survey data on emergency room visits found that for a pain-related visit, an opioid prescription was more likely for white patients (31 percent) than black patients (23 percent).

{snip}

The racial empathy gap is also a problem of our criminal justice system. Consider research on the impact of race on jury decisions. A 2002 experiment showed the power of race, empathy, and punishment. The researchers asked 90 white students to act as jurors and evaluate a larceny case. The manipulation, as you might suspect, is whether the defendant was black or white. But before jurors decided the defendant’s fate, they participated in an “empathy induction task.” Some jurors were assigned to a high-empathy condition and asked to imagine themselves in the defendant’s position. Other jurors were assigned to a low-empathy condition and asked to simply remain objective. Ultimately, the jurors gave black defendants harsher sentences (4.17 years) than whites (3.04 years)—even in the high-empathy condition (3.26 years versus 2.20 years, respectively)—and felt less empathy for black defendants.

This helps explain harsh sentencing in juvenile justice. Nationwide, youth of color are treated more harshly than their white peers. What is a prank for a white student is often treated as a zero-tolerance offense by a minority student. Minority students are more likely to receive an out-of-school suspension, even if they have a disability, more likely to be referred by their schools to law enforcement, more likely to be arrested, more likely to be tried in adult court, and more likely to receive a harsh sentence. {snip}

    This is a good example of liberals considering normal behavior abnormal. Blacks in Africa show no compassion or interest in those not in their group. Blacks continue this behavior when inhabiting other countries, so do most other groups. In fact the only men who behave otherwise are liberal white men, who help other groups and destroy themselves.

    • Sick of it

      They often show no compassion for those in their group as well.

      • YngveKlezmer

        Most definitely. Compassion and empathy are quite foreign to them. An exceedingly small smattering of them, at very best, display the levels of empathy and compassion that are commonplace amongst our people. This is why Negroes don’t need a military officer giving them orders to shoot others, as most of our people do. This is also why they have no remorse for their crimes, and Negroes who serve in the military do not struggle with PTSD very often, as our people do, when they have been ordered to kill. Killing is more of a sport for them, as the random and senseless violence of their neighborhoods attest to.

    • YngveKlezmer

      No doubt!! It is so perplexing the way Liberals do this. They verbalize notions that they must know, inside of their minds, to be absolute hogwash!! The Negro, as a species of human, is basically devoid of compassion or empathy. Not only do they not care about us, they don’t even care about other Blacks. Just look at how they behave when they become wealthy. Have any of the wealthier Blacks out there ever invested a fraction of the energy into helping the starving masses of Africans that White liberals do on a daily basis? It is only White Liberals who waste their time with this, and they only do so because many of them believe that Negroes, other than their skin color, are identical to Caucasians. Thanks to the modern media, their minds are not open to perceiving the behavior patterns of the Negro, and allowing themselves to accept and understand that Negroes, as a different race of humans from Caucasians, have a very different temperament from us.

  • ncpride

    What the…? Is this article a JOKE, because it sure reads like one. What does any of this mumbo jumbo have to do with the Zimmerman trial? Not a thing. This moron talks about lack of ‘racial empathy’ from Whites even after it’s been revealed that saint Martin referred to Z as a ‘creepy ass cracker?’ Seriously? The lengths these loony’s will go to blame YT (even when one is not involved) get more bizarre by the day. And I’m pretty sure Z did feel saint Martin’s ‘pain’….. I hear a broken nose, and having one’s head smashed against the pavement can be quite painful.

  • Funruffian

    This is Pseudo-science at its worst. From what I have seen in racially diverse school is that the Blacks get away with far more behavior infractions than do the Hispanics, Asians or Whites. This article has the reality backwards. This Silverstein is getting his data from out of some liberal’s sphincter. It doesn’t add up according to what I have seen. In fact, Blacks get away with far more crime and have the highest recidivistic rate of all the races. Race cards and the threats of black riots are what assist Blacks in keeping them out of prison, getting fired from a job, or expelled from school.

    • blindsticks

      Blacks get away with far more behavior infractions than do the Hispanics, Asians or Whites.
      They do in Britain too.

    • Sick of it

      They are nearly impossible to remove from government for the same reason.

  • I wasn’t there, but I felt her pain.

    • The__Bobster

      I don’t. She was a libtarded enabler of the beasts, too trusting and brainwashed for her own good.

      • I’ll bet that Eve was more racist than the Red Skull himself during the last 20 minutes of her life.

      • kjh64

        Yes, but who taught her? She was young. After being told all her short life by everyone around her, what does one expect? I hate to say this, but blame the politically correct brigade for this. There are certainly people here at Amren who were like her when they were her age but changed after they got more experience.

        • I reached he pinnacle of race realism back in 1989 when the news was reporting Affirmative Action in the Houston Police Department.

          The black defenders were only able to offer that there would be less blacks in the police department without it, and not disagreeing that blacks score lower.

          That’s it? I thought the department was throwing away black test scores of 99 because the department was racist, then hiring white guys who only scored a 71.

          So, the quotas not only continued but they got even worse by following Clinton’s lead. The mid ’90s saw Houston Police Department’s first of several all minority academy classes. It made the news, and was a cause of celebration. I cashed in on my 6% nonwhiteness, and a Spanish last name that survived in my branch of the family tree after crossing the Atlantic over 100 years ago. I started putting “H” down for my race and immediately reaped the benefits, even though I have not one ancestor from anywhere south of the Rio Grande.

    • Spartacus

      This white Afrikaaner woman was gang-raped, then disemboweled by blacks in SA. You think they were feeling her pain while they were doing it ?

      • David Ashton

        I remember showing various “liberal” MPs similar pictures of atrocity victims, white and black, during the “liberation” of Rhodesia and Portuguese Africa. They could not believe their eyes!

        • Spartacus

          Keep showing them to everybody you can. If nothing else, maybe we can depress some liberals enough so that they kill themselves.

        • John Liu

          Unfortunately these kinds of atrocities are bound to happen during times of intense conflict. Similar outrages were committed within Europe during WWII that were largely white on white.

          You guys should try and stop reducing everything down to race.

          • David Ashton

            My point was the psychological immunity of liberal politicians to facts they would regard as “racist”.

            South Africa is not technically at war today. The atrocities of Angolan revolutionaries and of the Mau Mau in Kenya were of unspeakably deliberate sadism, as also the necklacing in South Africa endorsed by Winnie Mandela at a public meeting available on film.

            There were many atrocities during WW2 but, though reprehensible, mostly of a different character, with the notable exception of extensive rape (without mutilation) which was especially manifested by black troops on the Allied side and by Russians on the other side deliberately incited against Germans.

          • Melanie

            It’s a dirty little secret that Emmett Till’s pappy was court-martialed and hanged at the end of WWII for the rape of at least three women and the murder of one of them, in Italy. He was only in the army after being given the choice between that and prison (one reason why our military shouldn’t be used as a dumping ground/boot camp for the criminally-minded), and was a serial rapist.

            I have thought it possible that the men in Mississippi who went after his son, were fully aware of the father’s reputation. Not that a son is responsible for a father’s crimes, but Till Jr whistling at/coming on to a white woman would not tend to be looked upon without fear, if his antecedents were known. That would be rather a brazen act, in those circumstances.

            The above has just made me realise something in a new way (though I’m already aware of it in general)-that the womyn, the feminazis, want to do at least as much to white heterosexual males for less than whistling, as was done to Till Jr when he acted with extreme deliberate provocation.

          • newscomments70

            35,000 white women are raped by black men every year in the US. It is possible that blacks rape even more white men in prison. White men rape almost no black people. That is just one example. Other types of crime have similar statistics. This is peace time in a first world country. “Us guys” do not reduce everything down to race. That has already done for us.

      • I wish you hadn’t shown that here. I was given three years in federal prison, and three years of free once-a-week shrink visits, in order that I might not hate as viciously as I once did my ex-father, but that makes my arms and legs feel cold.

        I will be delighted when the people who did this are extinct.

      • Camielle Belle Poole

        That’s horrible. I’m not sure what kind of inhuman monsters could ever do this sort of thing to another human being and think it’s okay. There is never justification for taking a human life.

        • There is always justification for taking another’s life. There are things I wish I had never seen, and that was one of them.

          My name is Michael Christopher Scott, DOB 4/12/66, and I will make them pay for that one.

          This can not be tolerated.

          • Spartacus

            I have my own little archive of atrocities against the Afrikaaner in SA, that I mostly use to awaken people that I know in real life. I know this might sound incredible, but when I post pics here on Amren, I’m actually very careful, as some of them are far too gruesome, much more than this one.

            Your hatred is very legitimate, I assure you.

        • Melanie

          The animals who would do this to a person aren’t human, and need putting down worse than dogs who do less and are supposed to have no moral conscience. A dog wouldn’t commit such an act.

      • YngveKlezmer

        OMG!!! This shows just how savage Negroes are. Every White Liberal should be forced to look at this, and to realize what needs to be learned by looking at this, that the Negro species of human is not to be trusted. They are savages, always have been, and always will be. This kind of violence is inborn behavior with them, not a result of adherence to an extreme religion or a particular ideology. It is senseless, animalistic violence.

    • YngveKlezmer

      What a gorgeous lass!!! In the good old days, Negroes knew better than to look at, let alone sexually harass, our ladies.

  • sbuffalonative

    I used to be what I call a ‘passive liberal’. I never actively supported liberal causes but I did grow up being taught that minorities (mainly blacks at the time) were mistreated. I grew up reading news stories and watching TV and movies (propaganda) about how blacks were treated badly. In the case of unjustified lynchings, this was true. I didn’t and still don’t believe deliberately mistreating people.

    As I matured, I came to see that much of what blacks claimed as ‘hate’ and ‘discrimination’ was the result of their own behavior. I continue to grow less and less sympathetic to blacks simply because I see their own (group) actions as causing their own problems.

    Now people call me a ‘racist’ because I believe blacks and whites are different (diverse) and are incompatible. Sure their are some good blacks and bad whites but without the racial component, I can effectively confront and deal with bad whites without being called a ‘hater’ while I have no defense against dealing with bad blacks because to do so means, to some, I’m a ‘racist’.

    It drives me mad that blacks keep calling me a racist while at the same time demanding to go to school with me, living in my white neighborhood, and work at the same job as me.

    Why do people who blame me for all of their problems demand to be around me?

    I know how black behave so I do everything to simply avoid them. I believe this is best for both of us. They don’t get to experience my ‘hate’ and I don’t have to alter my behavior to protect their feelings.

    • The__Bobster

      In the case of unjustified lynchings, this was true.
      ___________

      Most of them were justified and almost 30% of them involved Whites.

      • sbuffalonative

        I’ve seen the numbers. When you break them down between black and white and over the coarse of a 150 years, the number of blacks (guilty and innocent) is relatively low but mistakes were made and vengeance got the better of some people. No innocent person should be put to death.

        I don’t believe in mob justice simply because mistakes can be made in the heat of the moment and people my use the opportunity to settle real or imagined scores.

        I’m only acknowledging that while guilty whites and blacks were lynched for crimes they committed, there’s no doubt a few were unjustified.

        • Sick of it

          The modern “justice” system most likely punishes more people innocent of the crime than we did in the past. Hell people are convicted by the media today!

      • Sick of it

        I’d be shocked if only 30% involved whites. We used to hang men for a variety of offenses in my state and the one next door.

      • YngveKlezmer

        I, too, used to believe that many of them were not justified. Not anymore. Years of dealing with Blacks plus living experience has taught me that this is pure naivete. Nearly all of the lynchings were Whites avenging the violence Blacks had committed against them or their loved ones. Most lynchings, in fact, were backyard justice and retribution for the sexual violation of a White woman by a Negro. These days, my belief is that, most likely, Southern Whites did not lynch nearly as many Blacks, that had committed acts of senseless violence against Whites, as they could have. Northerners should have listened to our Southern Brethren on the Negro issue, and helped our Southern Brethren instead of believing that they were causing the problems. The Negroes were the ones causing the problems in the South. Today, the lesson we need to heed is that a house divided always falls. We, as Whites, need to be a united front against the Negro if we are to preserve our heritage from being destroyed by them.

    • anarchyst

      Please don’t let the accusation of “racist” bother you. For one, I am PROUD to be called “racist” and always respond with a hearty “thank you for noticing”. The looks on my accusers’ faces is priceless. In fact the white race “traitors” have the most bewildered look. By affirming their accusation, you actually DISARM them and their argument.
      Best regards,

      • sbuffalonative

        If it sounded as if I felt hurt by the accusation of being a racists, I’m not. I meant it more in a fashion of, ‘what can you do?’ while shrugging my shoulders.

        • ms_anthro

          Someone posted here a few days ago that their response to blacks who call them racist is, “Of course I am, and you have only yourselves to blame.” I like it.

    • Erasmus

      I continue to grow less and less sympathetic to blacks simply because I see their own (group) actions as causing their own problems.

    • dukem1

      “Passive liberal”. I’d put myself in that group as you describe it. Quite proudly, actually.
      I’m with you. And it perplexes me no end that when I see or hear reports of all (I’d say) we agree is dysfunction in the black community, and think :that just ain’t right, I’m a bad guy, a racist actually, just for noticing and wondering what’s goin’ on, to borrow a phrase.
      I’m a live and let live type. How the heck did all this become my fault. I understand the impulse to look outside ones self for something to blame any misfortune on any outside factor, but I certainly don’t feel we need the indulgence of this impulse as our national policy, complete with laws, regulations and Supreme Court decisions to feed it.
      We are just doomed, I am afraid.

      At my age, I just hope I have enough pep to go down swinging.

      • Melanie

        I’m farther along than mere “live and let live”, at the least I want them to “live and let” far away from me and mine. Even the “good ones” have family and friends who aren’t “good ones”, who follow them into white neighborhoods and hang-outs merely to bring their dysfunction and prey on whites. The difference is, whites in general won’t excuse a criminal amongst us just because he’s white, or for any other reason. Negroes will excuse a criminal solely because he’s black. If for no other reason, we can’t live peacefully side-by-side for that reason. Though it’s far from being the only reason.

    • Camielle Belle Poole

      Accurate. Not everything is racism. Sometimes it’s just honesty. Trust me, as a black person, if you point out stupid things black people do and say that simply AREN’T helping our image and you’re labelled a sell out.

    • EuroAmerican

      I was speaking about America to a Pakistani news stand vendor in NYC one day. and the topic moved to race relations. He said that when he lived in Pakistan and England he was taught that White Americans treat Blacks with hateful, inhuman brutality. I asked him if he still believed this to be true… he replied that he now knows that it is just the opposite.

    • EuroAmerican

      “I know how black behave so I do everything to simply avoid them. I believe this is best for both of us. They don’t get to experience my ‘hate’ and I don’t have to alter my behavior to protect their feelings.”

      I also practice “self segregation”. I don’t shop where they shop, I don’t eat where they eat, I don’t go to movies that they frequent etc. Though this may limit me I find the alternative unacceptable. They are an ignorant, volatile people with deep seated anger and self hate issues and are prone to unprovoked bursts of violence when they feel things aren’t going their way. When I do have to go amongst them I make sure I am legally armed and prepared to defend myself in case violence is ever directed my way. An informative book to read about Black violence perpetrated against innocent Whites in public is Colin Flaherty’s “White Girl Bleed Allot”.

      • Melanie

        Agree with everything you say except this one little nitpick-studies have shown that blacks hold high self-esteem, unwarrantedly high.

        • EuroAmerican

          The 400lbs spandex clad she-behemoth spouting “I KNOW I look good” comes to mind… but just like Afrocentrism where blacks pathetically try to glom on to Arab Egyptian history(Imhotep, Nefertiti, Cleopatra etc.) that is all bluster and posturing. At the end of the day when they look into the mirror they see intellectual, societal and historical inferiority. Because of this they hate and resent the White man but they hate themselves even more. Thus amongst themselves they refer to each other as “nigga” “bitch” “ho” “hood rat” etc. Deep down they know what they are….

          • MBlanc46

            This is an interesting debate. There is data that blacks have greater self-esteem than whites or Asians. And yet what you say about black behavior, EA, certainly rings true to anyone who has experience of them. Deeper analysis is required.

    • YngveKlezmer

      I grew up a passive liberal as well. Like yourself, witnessing and observing Negro behaviors led me to question the Liberal propaganda machine, and to seek the truth. I now see that, as far as race, the old generations lived in reality. Post-1960’s notions on race are not even based on science. They are based on liberal ideas that stem from Whites having given into Black bullying. Martin Luther King, I have come to realize, was not the humanitarian and hero that I was taught to believe he was in school. He was a despicable Black bully. What happened in the Civil Rights movement, I have come to realize, was that Whites caved in to Black bullies, instead of standing our ground. That is all. Blacks are bullies by nature, and we quit standing our ground with them about 50 years ago. This is, and has been, America’s biggest mistake, and is slowly making what was once the world’s greatest nation into a Third World Country.

      • Melanie

        The South tried to stand, and the federal gov sicced its minions on the South. Who at that time especially, had more experience of what it was like to live amongst large populations of blacks? Who would have known the truth? Who had experieced Reconstruction and the nightmare of negro rule, backed by the fed gov at every stage?

        • YngveKlezmer

          I’ve always felt this as well. Southerners knew what the Black temperament is like. In the Northern states, only folks in a few cities knew Blacks at the same level. I remember reading that George Wallace received his largest number of votes in a Northern state in the city of Milwaukee on the South Side, which was then mostly Polish and Serbian. In some spots, only a bridge over the river separated the scary Black ghetto from the clean, safe Polish neighborhoods of the South side.

        • MBlanc46

          The North was much more segregated than the South, and most northerners were quite happy to keep it that way. If Jim Crow had not been so egregiously unjust, it might still be in effect.

          • Melanie

            The South had many many times more blacks in those states than did the North. After their experience of Reconstuction and illiterate black rule (controlled behind the scenes by the Yankee puppetmasters), the loss of their civil rights (including voting), arbitrary taxation, etc, it’s not unexpected that once Reconstruction ended, Southerners would take measures to make sure this could never happen to them again. Also, don’t forget that then, and even now, the majority of blacks still live in the former Confederate states. My own state’s population is almost evenly split between blacks and whites-whites having a scant majority-and that’s even since the “Great Migration”, when many southern blacks headed North. White Southerners have to deal with factors which northerners hadn’t had to face, such as the real possibility of being out-numbered by blacks (and this was when whites still had large families-even today, white Southerners have, on average, larger families than whites in other regions exxept possibly Utah). The Jim Crow laws weren’t merely a way of being “mean” and unfair to blacks-it was self-protection by whites, with Reconstruction still witin living memoryby many at that time.

          • MBlanc46

            The Jim Crow laws were intended, in theory at least, to segregate and control blacks. That’s fine. I approve of that. But they were applied in oppressive, hard-hearted, and unjust (remember, it was supposed to be “separaten but equal”). As I said, had that not been the case, we might still have them.

    • Melanie

      I don’t believe for one second that the whole moral compass of blacks as a whole could have just changed since those days to how they are now-it was, IMO, merely suppressed by the authoritative hand of whites, unlike now. So I agree that most of those lynchings were probably not unjustified. As for the rest, blacks murder more whites every year now, than the total sum of lynchings-black, white, or other-in American history.

  • Tinfoil A22hat

    LOL the tribe couldn’t cite a more renowned University that has carried out such an obviously crucial study about this particular construct of diversity? Oh well, I’m sure this experiment has been replicated somewhere else, right? Oh wait, that’s right we just take for granted that whatever someone from some University says is true. No need to be all scientific about it or anything. It’s not like he’s basing some sort of argument off the results of this “study”.

  • libertarian1234

    I got to the first few lines and it was more than obvious this out-of-touch geek wasn’t going to stray one iota from making one hare-brained assertion after another, so I dropped off.

    He needs to imbed himself in a multicultural paradise somewhere that’s more advanced than we are right now in order to enjoy all the benefits of diversity.

    But, come to think of it, there’s no society that’s any further down the road to multicultural insanity than this nation, because they’ve all split apart after purging their ranks with wholesale slaughter.

    • Melanie

      Have you ever noticed that Section 8 housing is placed in mostly middle and working class white neighborhoods? The white leftists who are doing it never place it in their own back yards. If they truly believed everything they say about these ghetto blacks being no threat, if they didn’t ignore data about the disproportion in black crime and dysfunction, wouldn’t they feel perfectly safe in having this vibrancy they so claim to adore, right in their own back yards? No, they force it down the necks of whites who are not plugged into leftist power.

      In my more liberal days and when Alexander Cockburn was still alive, I used to read CounterPunch occasionally. For a lefty, he wasn’t totally useless, being skeptical of AGW, sometimes running Craig Paul Roberts, Pat Buchanan, or the occasional immigration-restrictionist article from a left viewpoint. I grew out of that phase, but it showed me that I agreed with the Right more often than I thought, and provided the spark to get me away from the left altogether. In hindsight, their 2004 election issue where they called for blue state secession from the US was a bit prophetic.

    2 black thugs murder a white 14 year old (Bailey McNeil) and they get a 1 day suspension.

    Really, Whites have less empathy? Then, I ask, why is it Whites and only Whites that go around helping Africa and American-Blacks? You never see American Blacks helping Africans, nor do you see Hispanics or Asians. It’s always Whites who they then turn around and accuse of racism and non caring.

          True enough. My mother is a social worker and I do a lot of community volunteering/activism. We come across the WORST sort of people who want to just sit around and collect a check. Then they won’t even use the money to clothe their children. It’s ridiculous how some people will not even go get a GED without it being “kindly” suggested or forced into it.

            I think that you had it right the first time. A large percentage of the Afro-American population simply do not have the psychological equipment to function in modern, technological society. What to do about them, while at the same time acting justly toward those Afro-Americans who can so function, is the problem of our time.

    Blacks feel less pain due to thicker craniums . . . 🙂

    If there is an empathy gap, I’ll make a wild guess and attribute it to Negro Fatigue. Certainly in my life, familiarity has bred contempt.

  • Fredrik_H

    That is correct. Nordics and japanese have the highest threshold for pain. Both have a strong cultural notion of pain being something that should be stoically endured without much fuss.

    • Funruffian

      But does this mean they hide and endure more pain by virtue to prove their courage and noble stamina? Or do they physically feel less pain.

      • In my wife’s case, cold really doesn’t seem to bother her. We keep the thermostat in the 55F range during the winters. I don’t mind it when I’m awake and moving around, but I’m not fond of it while I’m trying to sleep.

        • YngveKlezmer

          My wife and I are that way too. I’m Norwegian/Swedish/German, She is Polish/German, and neither of us enjoy a lot of heat. For us, the ideal temps for comfort are 60-65 degrees Fahrenheit.

  • GeneticsareDestiny

    As soon as I got to this sentence in the story:

    “A 2008 review of 13 years of national survey data on emergency room visits found that for a pain-related visit, an opioid prescription was more likely for white patients (31 percent) than black patients (23 percent).”

    I immediately thought that it was probably because blacks are more likely to try to sell the pain medication on the street, and doctors and nurses know that, even if they would never admit it.

    Blacks cause almost all of their own problems.

  • GeneticsareDestiny

    Pretty much every fact about racial differences is a great argument for segregation, even the facts the liberal establishment likes, like the racial empathy gap.

  • Romulus

    NO KIDDING!!! Some crap science finds out what we could have told ten for free. One would assume automatically that any racial group would sympathize with their own first. Another incredible waste of time.

  • blindsticks

    ‘Silverstein’? Hm…. excuse me if I don’t swallow this bull in too much of a hurry. Otherwise in Britain it’s definitely the opposite. Feral whites get far harsher treatment and sentencing than feral Blacks or Muslims. Come over and visit our courts anytime Mr Silverstein.
    See for yourself

  • If there was one word, one trait, one characteristic that I had to name that is lacking in the black psyche at a societal level, aside from things like intelligence, common sense, and impulse control, empathy might be it. I’ve lived around plenty of black people in predominantly black neighborhoods, and unless they’ve changed the definition of empathy, black people have less than any group I’ve ever been around. Most of their compassion and empathy is just feigned in order to manipulate a situation. Take some of our worst representatives of the White race as far as empathy goes, and that is pretty close the the average black empathy level. Racial empathy gap indeed.

    • GeneticsareDestiny

      Yes, I’ve noticed that too, and the study found that even blacks don’t feel much empathy for other blacks.

      “In each experiment, the researchers found that white participants, black participants, and nurses and nursing students assumed that blacks felt less pain than whites.”

      But of course, whites are going to get the brunt of the blame for black suffering, all the while blacks get a free pass for everything they do, both to whites and to their own people.

  • IKantunderstand

    Hey Silverstein, of course race matters. As a matter of fact, the question of race has been “elevated” to the sine qua non of our time. Which of course, means I’m puzzled. You libs keep telling us that race is a “social construct”. Except, of course, when you tell us that it isn’t. And for some inexplicable reason, you accuse those Americans who actually know what race is and what it means, and that it results in real consequences for everyone, as racists. Well, see, this the problem we Americans are having, you know, it goes against our well developed sense of fair play. I mean, come on, you libs are always telling us how smart you are about, well, everything. So, is race a “social construct”, or real? I don’t think that it’s a coincidence that the group who started modern psychology, is the same group who is behind this complete and utter display of schizophrenic thinking.

  • JohnEngelman

    Nationwide, youth of color are treated more harshly than their white peers.

    – Jason Silverstein, Slate, June 27, 2013

    I am confident that this is not true for Orientals.

    Public schools are unfortunately under pressure to reduce suspensions of black students. If they increased those suspensions public schools would be safer. White liberals, who have been grotesquely hypocritical on this issue, might be more willing to send their children to public schools.

  • humura

    What bs. Black flash mobs attack whites, inflicting pain and humiliation. Blacks play a game of knock-out punching whitey, sometimes killing. Black on white crime is many times white on Black crime. Blacks are a high proportion in prison, not because of prejudice, but becaue they are more involved in violent crime. Who then will have more punishment inside the prison, the convicted Black or white? Etc.

  • AllSeeingEyeSpy

    “They feel more empathy when they see white skin pierced than black. This is known as the racial empathy gap”.

    This must explain why white men are going under the proverbial needle and yet it would be politically incorrect not to call for more not to mention impolite to even notice, let alone ‘feel some kind of empathy’.

    Liberal psychosis extends even to automatic subheading in London newspapers; e.g. “The Independent”, June 29, reports an eyewitness stating that “the unarrmed teen was striking Mr Zimmerman” under the heading: “Trayvon ‘did not hit’ Zimmerman” (p.32).

  • Eve was killed by one punk. You might be thinking of 12 year old Emily Haddock, who stayed home from school for having strep throat. Five blacks broke in to steal, and shot her in the mouth, then the back of the head.
    Her story was immediately covered up, but I constantly remind others of Eve, Channon, Emily, and a few others all the time on the Trayvon Martin sites.

  • DiversityIsDeath

    Poor Paula Deen is being crucified for admitting to using a naughty word many years ago, yet in the recent Zimmerman trial coverage we see those same outraged blacks and self-hating white liberals pooh-poohing the fact that “creepy ass cracker” was used by Trayvon Martin, his testifying homies, and their defenders. This vulgar anti-white term is being dismissed as just the way kids talk nowadays. “Oh that’s just their culture. It’s not racist language.”

    • MBlanc46

      But “it’s not a racial term”, right?

  • Martel

    The racial empathy gap is there, but its the other way around. I have never seen any sympathy for victims of often, much more violent black racism.

  • Sick of it

    Lynching used to be a punishment under the law…the court would order a man hung until dead. Or are you specifically referring to an extrajudicial mob?

    • Lynching is not identical to hanging; it means the extrajudicial mob, which (in the USA) often did use hanging. An African “necklacing” using an old car tire and a can of gasoline is still a lynching. What matters is the lack of any court procedure prior to the killing of the suspect.

      Caveat: self-defense is not lynching. The extrajudicial killing must be carried out in cold blood.

      • Sick of it

        In that case, even with extrajudicial hangings, quite a few were performed due to the shenanigans of corrupt judges. Especially when talking about the Gilded Age.

  • Paleoconn

    I love how the MSM continue to refer to the towering late teen Trayvon Martin as ‘boy’ and the diminutive, pudgy Zimmerman as ‘man’. They also keep showing the picture of a cherubic 12-year-old Martin with a nice, polite smile and a Hollister tee. Why don’t they show the pics of him with showing off his grills or his middle finger?

  • IstvanIN

    That no doubt is true. They hoot and holler over everything. And then they stop. They remind me of piglets. Shortly after birth male piglets are castrated using a device that removes the scrotum and testicles and staples the wound in one shot. the piglets, of course, squeal like the dickens when picked up, but after the procedure, when put back down, they stop squealing and run back to mom to suckle. Blacks seem very similar, their distress is more of the moment than anything long term.

  • Wethepeople

    A all observers (those being rated on an empathy scale) were white, and the result was they were empathetic for both but slightly more so for their own race? That’s just logic and evolution at work, even if you are a libtard, centuries of combat and survival taught us to watch out for our clan members; therefore it is ingrained in our subconscious. I imagine if those of sub-Saharan decent were shown similar images, they wouldn’t be empathetic to their race (shown by group behavior in Africa, and the ghettos); furthermore, if they saw a white in pain the pleasure receptors in their brain would be all fired up, they’d most likely have some level of sexual gratification at it as well.

    • Camielle Belle Poole

      If I’m honest…most of the people I know who get sexual gratification out of viewing pain are whites. Other than the ones involved in the fetish scene…it creeps black people out.

      • Xerxes22

        Yeah sure. That’s why Blacks were “creeped out” about Michael Vick torturing and murdering his dogs. Yeah Black people are wonderful. They have so much empathy, just like that nice Morgan Freeman in all those movies.

        • Camielle Belle Poole

          I think black people have a view toward animals that is different than the view toward people. Some people view animals in a way that would suggest that they don’t feel pain. Some treat animals like they are family. These individuals come in black AND white. I don’t believe in animal cruelty. I’m vegan. I know a lot of black people who share this stance. I think the amount of empathy you have for others depends on your background and where you come from. It comes for your own personal morals and values. If you believe that all life is sacred, then you probably feel more empathy than someone who doesn’t.

          • unadorned

            Yes, white guys get a shitty deal in America. Your whiteness is penalized. Your maleness is penalized. And if you MUST know I have written about it ON my blog and I’ve called for the end of AA. To quote my own essay,

            “I think the real solution is to practice true Race/Gender Blindness. Let’s not put names, races, or genders on our applications. We should just send in the relevant information, and get our responses that way when rejected or accepted no one can talk about any sort of discrimination. That can be our first step to equality across the board. If we do this, we will not need AA. The most qualified people will get what they deserve, and people who did not earn it, will not. As I stated earlier, this may lead to whiter college campuses and corporations. That’s where this next thing comes in. We cannot complain that we are not treated as equals when we do not behave as such.”

  • I find this hilarious. Liberal blue city Jewish-dominated is the STOP AND FRISK CAPITAL OF THE WORLD. At least Zimmerman followed a suspicious looking black guy. Jews who run NY order NYPD to randomly stop and frisk a whole bunch of blacks. Where is the EMPATHY, Mr. Jewish Silverstein?

    Btw, George Zimmerman is a guy who volunteered his time to help black kids do homework. He was only looking for criminals cuz his community was struck by a whole series of robberies, almost all of them by black men. And boy oh boy, did he feel PAIN that night. His own pain as he was pummeled nearly to death by Martin, who has a long history of fighting and beating up people.

    Empathy means ‘feeling what others do’. As Zimmerman’s neighborhood suffered lots of crime by blacks, Zimmerman came to empathize with black criminal behavior: how blacks stalk neighborhoods and look for easy victims. Empathy isn’t the same as sympathy. It’s about seeing the world as others see it. Silverstein seems to lack empathy. He sees Trayvon as some angelic kid who was ‘only armed with skittles’. But anyone who knows the racial reality in America should know that many young black males like Martin are criminally oriented. I mean even a liberal TV show like WIRE admits that lots of crime are committed by young black males.

    And if Silverstein is so full of empathy, why is he a privileged Jew who went to an exclusive school and lives in a privileged community? At least people like Zimmerman live close to lots of criminal and lower-income people. Silverstein rubs shoulders with the rich, the snobby,and privileged.

    Indeed, Silverstein, being Jewish, belongs to the tribe in this country that hogs all the sympathy. As Jews control the narrative, we only hear about the Holocaust but few Americans know about the millions killed by communism(and fewer yet know that Jews played a big role in communism). Because of America’s lopsided sympathy for Israel, Americans feel zero sympathy for Palestinians who’ve been oppressed by imperialist Zionists. Jewish media only tell us about Jewish suffering but never about Ukrainian suffering. Americans don’t know that 4 million Ukrainians were killed by Stalin and his Jewish henchmen. Jews like Silverstein don’t want us to feel sympathy for victims of Jewish mass murder.

    And because Jews own Hollywood, they’ve made tons of movies where Russians, Muslims, Chinese, and Southern whites are subhuman villains. Many hollywood movies play on Islamophobia and yellow peril and anti-Russian bias, but Silverstein the Jew dares to lecture us about empathy!!! I’ll bet Silverstein is a rabid Zionist who supports Israel, a nation founded by massive ethnic cleansing. I’ll bet Silverstein feels no sympathy for white victims of black crime. (Black on white violence is endemic because blacks are physically stronger and more aggressive than whites. Black often beat up shorter and stubbier Mexicans too. Much of anti-gay violence comes from the black community. Blacks know they are stronger and often refer to whites as ‘fa–otyass white boys’. And of course, Jewish moguls in the music industry raked in billions of dollars by peddling rap songs that revel in murder and rape. Jews also control the porn industry that treats white gentile women like pieces of meat to be sold. So much for Jewish sympathy and empathy.)

    Also, if Jews are so full of empathy, why are they the most unequal, richest, and most privileged people in America? Why do Jews spend so much time making more money and gaining more privilege than moving to places like Detroit to live next to blacks and learning to empathize with them? The last time I checked, Jews live in the whitest and richest parts of NY, Chicago, Miami, LA, Washington DC, and etc. Jews use STOP AND FRISK in NY to control the Negroes. They use section 8 housing to drive out dangerous urban blacks into small towns and suburbs. Jewish liberals practice massive gentric cleansing to push the burden of black crime on working class and lower middle class whites while rich urban Jews grow richer and richer and live in every gentrifying urban communities.

  • Northerner

    A study can be made or manipulated to show any result.

  • Athling

    This is a good example of how a study can be slanted toward a desired outcome. Notice that the reverse situation was not done — testing the empathy level of black subjects toward whites.

    Altruism has its foundation in empathy and is common only to the white race. We see this everywhere from donations to charities to disaster relief. Whites are heavily involved in these types of activities, blacks are not. I believe I remember a study that showed blacks gave the least amount to charities than any other race. Poorer whites gave the most.

    The remarkable lack of empathy among blacks can also be seen in the crime rate statistics. Blacks not only display little empathy toward whites but also have very little for each other.

    This study is yet another tool used by lefties against whites. It is false.

    • Camielle Belle Poole

      I’m pretty sure they did. It said that blacks felt more empathy toward whites. In order to notice a GAP one have to be measuring the distance between two points. I thought that was obvious to everyone.

    Not surprising that one has the most empathy and sympathy with people either most like one’s self or closest to our notions of beauty, grace, AND DESIRABILITY. I willingly admit that my negativity towards blacks stems from childhood experiences where they represented something extremely negative physically, olfactorilly, and socially. I suppose hypnotism could solve this but I don’t really care. I avoid blacks for my own safety, my own pleasure, and my own good sense.

    • newscomments70

      I used to have black friends and acquaintances. As a youth, I went out of my way to make such acquaintances. I was a product of media propaganda. Some were actually quite nice…some were violent criminals though. At this time, because of life experiences and racial awareness, I avoid all blacks. I don’t look at them, talk to them, nothing. Some of them might be ok, but I feel so much resentment and mistrust that I cannot proceed. If I see a white women with mulatto children, I avoid her as well. To me, such women don’t even exist. They are already dead. Because of racial awareness, I have lost many friends. I just can’t sit by while someone verbally bashes whites. I stand up and say something. People aren’t used to that and it shocks them. My former black friends were actually careful about that. Some were even understanding about my views. Mexicans I used to know were OK sometimes, but they seemed to believe that pedophiles can only be white, and “viva la reconquista”. The worst white bashing I heard was from white liberals and Asian liberals. I live in a liberal town. When I moved here, the liberals invited me to cookouts. Whenver they discussed politics, I would not keep my mouth shut. I would talk about racial double standards, and that I support the death penalty, etc. One evening, some older gay man at the cookout tried to hit on me. I told him to stay the hell away from me. People were shocked….”a homophobe and a racist”. My Asian friends in the city were a mixture of hardcore liberals and fiscal conservatives (neo-cons). They loved Hollywood movies. I would often point out that the movies were anti-white and offensive. I also told them to stop using the word “white trash”. They basically agreed with me, but no one likes to have their comfortable world threatened. Needless to say, no one invites me to cookouts anymore. I feel like I’m unplugged from “the Matrix”. It’s an awful feeling, but I can no longer accept PC BS.

He wrote to me when I was in prison for three years, but now won’t speak with me anymore. There are things a fellow can’t fix.

    It was always interesting to listen to the Blacks in the Army (’69-’71). They’d call each other “Nigers” (sic) and think nothing of it. But one fight between them and us happened because the Blacks outside the window thought they heard us call them Nigers (sic). I was sitting on the window seat and know I never said that.
    Then the Blacks were always calling us “Honkies” and our reaction was laughter, me because I knew we were being insulted but didn’t care and had no idea what the insult was. Someone out there told a few weeks ago the term Honkie came from the fact that white people would drive to the black area’s and if there was a potential hooker in the doorway, etc. they’d honk their horns and she’d come out to meet them. I never did so don’t look at me that way. LOL

  • People are also just plain different: even family members. My mother is as tough as nails and doesn’t need novocain for dental work. When I had an implant done on a shattered #9 tooth, I didn’t need any painkillers for the bone-deep scalpel work at all (and I swallowed the blood – think “recycling”), but once they started drilling into the bone (to set the titanium post the implant’s crown would eventually go on), they couldn’t give me enough. Once they hit the bone, I felt everything. I’ve also had the misfortune of coming out of shock before two bad bone breaks could be looked at, the second one also being a gunshot wound (no morpheine). The feeling of broken bone ends grating together still makes me a bit queasy thinking about it.

    I still can’t imagine my mother saying: “No novocain; just drill it.”

    I believe that great negrophile himself, Jimmy Carter, admitted several years back that when he sees pictures of African stick babies with faces full of flies, “he doesn’t feel the same” as he would if he saw pictures of starving European children. In fact, he probably doesn’t feel anything at all because he knows that starvation, disease, insane violence and inhumanity have existed in Africa from time immemorial.

    • John Liu

      A gross stereotype. Africa has improved over the past decade, and the continent is far better off now than it was just 10 years ago.

      Some tragic pictures from various parts of the continent are no more representative of what is happening there overall than pictures of the Bosnian conflict could have been extrapolated to Zurich.

      Europe has certainly had its share of tragedies just this past century.

  • cablegirls

    Man in Florida here… I think the discrepancy in emergency room opioid prescriptions for pain-related visits between blacks (23%) and whites (31%) can be explained by the fact that a higher percentage of blacks use the emergency room for all their medical attention, including for lesser injuries, whereas a higher percentage of whites, being more likely to have a family physician, tend to use the ER only for extreme problems.

  • YngveKlezmer

    Another article written from the slant of a White Liberal that has obviously spent little to no time around members of the Negro race. If the author had suffered the indignity of spending significant amounts of time around Negroids, he would know their temperament. He would know that empathy is almost a foreign concept to them. When they see someone get hurt, whether one of their own or not, they do not feel the other person’s pain. They find the pain of another human to be either funny, or simply not something worthy of their consideration. How different of a temperament the Negro species of human has from us Caucasians is not to be underestimated, and those of us who have had sufficient exposure to Negroids know this to be the case. We didn’t have to do any scientific experiments to learn this, either, as Negroid behavior makes this blatantly obvious. The late Dr. Philippe Rushton, in fact, provided us with the scientific evidence for what we already knew. Every White Liberal who writes an idiotic, insulting article like this should first be forced to work in either a factory or office, for a while, where at least half of the other workers are Negroid, and than be handed Rushton’s book on Race, Evolution, and Behavior, and they will write an article extolling the virtues of Rushton’s work. Add in a couple of Asian workers along with the Negroes, and there is no doubt that they will see that Rushton’s work held an almost exact mirror to the realities of race that some of us have known for many years.

  • YngveKlezmer

    It doesn’t have a thing to do with any supposed hardship that they have faced. It has to do with them having a different temperament than us. They have little to no empathy, and this is how they are born. This is because they are a less advanced species of human. As a race, their emotions are less developed, and less advanced than Caucasians and Asians. They are more violent, and especially more likely to kill, as their emotional fabric is quite underdeveloped as compared to other humans. When Jared Taylor refers to them as a Retrograde Species of Human, he has hit the nail squarely on the head. This is why we should have left them in Africa, and should never have tried to lift them up to our level. They are not on our level, and never will be. You can’t change Nature.

    Of course not!! White Liberals are trying to invent a fantasy world, where the Negro is nothing more than a Caucasian person with a really dark complexion. They don’t want to accept that they are a different race, and that their dark complexion is the least of the ways in which they are unlike us. Older Generations understood this. My Grandparents referred to Blacks as Negroes, because that is what they are.
    How these Liberals can look at New Delhi Indians, for example, who are racially some mixture of Caucasoid/Asiatic, and not notice that, despite their being as dark as many Negroes, they neither look not act anything like Negroes, just shows how stupid the Liberals are. Not only do New Delhi Indians look nothing like Negroes, they, most importantly, act like us, not like the Negroes, and thus, have fit in well in our cultures.

    That’s because we have no soul. 😉

    Liberals inhabit a fantasy world, where there is no such thing as the Negro race. They pretend that Negroes are dark complexioned Caucasians, even though they know that this is complete hogwash. They too know, somewhere in their deluded minds, that the Negro race is not compatible with us, and never will be.

    Exactly!! They are ignoring scientific reality.

    Not justified, no, unless the criminal justice system is failing to protect the innocent. When innocent people are not being protected, backyard justice is justified. In my opinion, those Whites who had the guts to lynch Ni&*ers who had raped women, senselessly beaten, and bullied innocent Whites were folk heroes.

    • You said they were folk heroes.

      “Were”?

      • YngveKlezmer

        We should be able to say “Are” in place of “Were” on this issue, no doubt about it. In recent years, though, is just doesn’t seem like folks stand up to the Blacks the way we used to. A good Klan rally used to send them the right message. As long as they don’t actually have anything against Catholics/Jews, Klansmen are a good thing. They send the right message to the Negroes, and set the right tone with regards to thoughts they might have of violence, miscegenation, and bullying. Provided they are focused on the Koons, and leave Catholics and Jews alone, which seemed to be the case in the 90’s at least, the Klan is a good group to have around.

    Wrong indeed. These days, “Youth of color”, which is just a code word for Negro youth, are treated with a munificence, by White Liberals, never before seen in the history of humanity. They are coddled with the most velvety pair of kid gloves the world has ever seen.

    Studies I have seen show that negroes hold more unjustified self-esteem towards themselves than any other group, especially in light of their lack of accomplishment as one species of human. All the white “esteem” of this group has done is to simultaneously pump their heads up and frustrate them, because they can’t help seeing why whites are justly esteemed, when they are (though never as “white”-our accmplishments must always be seen in some “human”, national, or global context, never as whites, unlike others races who have nothing but their race to on which to pride themselves).

  • YngveKlezmer

    More hardship?? I think not. This is just what they want us to think. Those of us who know what they are like know that this is a total crock. The hardship has been faced by Whites who have had to deal with Negroes.

  • I believe the term is “nonhuman”. They aren’t really people the way you are.

  • Camielle Belle Poole

    Yeah. You learn this in and Intro to African Studies course. There’s also this weird misconception that white people were going to the village and kidnapping blacks. Africans sold their brethren into captivity. There is hardly any sense of unity. Any other group protects their own. It’s PART of why we’re so far behind.

      The liberal MSM is rewriting and revising history. You can also thank Hollywood for grooming viewers to believe fairy tales like “Roots”. The truth about American slavery will never be told because there are too many heroes, as well as villains, that would not be popular or pass the propaganda board.

      If aliens came down and watched our TV and films they would think America was 50% Redneck, racist, hillbillies and 50% black heroes, geniuses, scientists and social saviors and that we had 6 black presidents, Obama and Morgan Freeman five times.

        God forbid someone told the truth…

      Blacks always seem to circle the wagons when any black is accused of anything. The OJ Simpson trial is a case in point. It seems to me that black racial solidarity is pretty strong where whites are concerned. When a situation is black only, the “barrel of crabs” analogy seems to hold.

  • Camielle Belle Poole

    I don’t know. I can’t answer that question. The system has been set up so that an entire group is made to feel responsible for actions of people they may resemble in minor ways.

  • MBlanc46

    You’re probably right that most of the lynch victims were probably guilty of what they were lynched for. But the fact that the proceedings were extralegal leaves them open to retrospective scrutiny. Had due process been followed, you’d have had the same result–executed black man–but the that result would not be open to retrospective criticism. When you abandon the rule of law, you’ll rightly be seen as lawless.
