Babies Just 15 Months Old Show Racial Bias When Picking Playmates

Daily Mail (London), April 16, 2014

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals.

They also take account of how fairly others behave.

Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed.

Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally.

Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly.

But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports.

And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as in-group bias when people favour those with the same characteristics as oneself.

The University of Washington team first noticed the phenomenon when the infants began playing favourites with the researchers during a previous experiment.

Professor Jessica Sommerville said: ‘At the time, about half of the research assistants in my lab were Asian-American and the other half were Caucasian, and most of the babies in our experiments are Caucasian.

‘We know that by preschool, children show in-group bias concerning race, but results in infants have been mixed.

‘It’s surprising to see these pro-social traits of valuing fairness so early on, but at the same time, we’re also seeing that babies have self-motivated concerns too.’

The study revealed when it came to picking a playmate, the babies seemed more tolerant of unfairness when the white recipient benefited from it.

They picked the fair experimenter less often when the unfair experimenter gave more toys to the white recipient rather than the Asian one.

The researchers say this implies that babies can take into account both race and social history when deciding which person would make a better playmate.

Professor Jessica Sommerville of the University of Washington said: ‘If all babies care about is fairness, then they would always pick the fair distributor, but we’re also seeing that they’re interested in consequences for their own group members.’

    Of course, babies take race into account–it’s called the natural order of the universe.

    • JSS

      It is indeed the natural order of the universe. One of the most amusing things to me about professional race deniers and do gooders is that they are typically the first to claim they only believe in “science”. But nowhere does science support the equality of human subspecies. Anyone who claims to believe that race is a social construct but also claims to have no faith in miracles is simply practicing double think. I see no difference in the usual monotheistic creation myth and the belief that all human sub species evolved to be carbon copies other then skin color over tens of thousands of years. They both require a belief in miracles.

        “the biological equality of human races and ethnic groups is not inevitable. In fact it’s about as likely as a fistful of silver dollars all landing on edge when dropped.” – Cochran & Harpending, “The 10,000 Year Explosion” (2009), 156-157.

          Equality is a figment of the human imagination.

      • Alfred the Great

        God literally spoke four words to me about six years ago, so I believe in Him. I say this because I have been researching my book project for several years and realize that there were probably separate creations of the races. Given the Bible’s time line there is no way that the races can be the result of environment and diet. If God hadn’t said those words to me, I would not believe in Him because of my research. I hope that makes some sense.

        • saxonsun

          Sorry. The Bible is mere myth, so it could not have been God.

      • Garrett Brown

        You should go on Reddit and try and bring up racial difference with these so called “pro science atheists”. It’s quite amusing.

    • sbuffalonative

      It’s what created and maintains DIVERSITY.

      If all birds mated with each other, there would be only one kind of bird.

    • wildfirexx

      It’s most likely tribal instinct, but if the baby is used of seeing it’s mother’s face since birth, it will probably also relate to race!

      • Anna Tree

        I wish they would experiment also with babies of other races.

        Not only to silence (if ever possible) those who will of course accuse white
        babies of being racist, but I wonder if there are differences in the
        extent and magnitude of in-group “bias” between races.

        And indeed, also check adopted and mixed race babies as control groups, to see if this could be related with the mom’s face/race and not with one’s genes or instincts (memes?).

        • LovelyNordicHeidi

          I would think babies from other races will show more bias.

          I agree with your post. Just one thing: Do not let enemy terminology become your own terminology. Do not call it “bias” but something like “natural racial preference.”

          • Anna Tree

            Hi Heidi, I did write the world in quotes in the first instance to show mockery.

            But I am not sure it is an enemy terminology. Or that we should fear bias, or despise or be ashamed of it. Bias is natural and healthy, like discrimination (and actually exists since the 16 century, I presume not with any connection to race then).

            If the liberal leftists wants the term to be negative/criminal, on the contrary, I don’t think we should let them didact (exhort?) it to us. I stand my ground: humans are tribal and they have bias, it was a key of survival, and still is.

            Unfortunately, for different reasons, I think whites have distanced themselves from bias (brainwashing, meme) and I wonder if other races wouldn’t in fact show more bias in a similar experiment like the one reported in the article.

    • Lagerstrom

      The natural order of the universe? Do you mean nature?
      Something that mentally ill marxists know nothing about.

  • Lt. Greyman, NVA

    This is just another example of da terble, terble leg’cy ob da Slabery.

  • sbuffalonative

    How do we eliminate this ‘in-group bias’ that poisons the minds of white toddlers? Is there a solution? Can we find a way to correct the mistake nature has used to corrupt young white minds?

    More exposure to more minorities? Isolating white children from other white children? Shaming and embarrassing them for following their instincts?

    • Cecil Broomsted

      All of the above until such time as brain surgery is approved by the FDA.

    • Puggg

      Southern Poverty Law Center programs administered at birth.

    • AndrewInterrupted

      This was just another opportunity for the Marxists to perpetuate some white guilt. Brain-washing is all about repetition.

  • Truthseeker

    Someone with common sense would say that this proves that people are naturally tribal have have a certain affinity for their own kind, and that all these attempts to “eliminate racial discrimination” are futile. The liberals will probably say that children need to be raised by the state, since parents can’t help but make their children into evil little racists.

  • shawnmer

    Why were there no black babies and black adults involved in this experiment to see if blacks exhibit a similar “in group bias,” I wonder??
    Hmmm …

    • ncpride

      My thoughts exactly. They are forever looking for ‘racism’ in Whites, but we never hear about these ridiculous ‘experiments’ being done on other races, which would probably result in the same outcome. Of course, it’s perfectly acceptable for ALL other races to show solidarity and unity with their own.

      • JackKrak

        There’s also never any mention of the decades-long, supremely well-documented living “experiment” of our day to day contact with blacks and our observation of their behavior that shows that they are dumb, violent and generally useless.

        But Mr. Academic would rather ignore oceans of data and mountains of evidence that lead to uncomfortable conclusions so they can watch white kids play with toys and then breathlessly report their “findings” about what race is REALLY behind all the problems in the world.

  • I posted this story last night on my website with the title Sick, Demented University Researchers “Prove” that WHITE Babies are Racists, and wrote:

    “I’ve posted the entire story here. If you click on the link at the end, you can read the comments, which are highly negative towards this so-called research. Be concerned, White people. This research can easily form the foundation for a program of open genocide on White babies.”

    The goal is the extermination of Whites through abortion and propagandizing. Once everyone accepts that white babies are evil racists, then it becomes no problem for blacks, government, etc. to start killing them on a routine basis. If I had the email addresses of the researchers I would give them my two cents worth.

    • Viv J

      Yes. I used to think I was paranoid, but not anymore. If white babies are the problem, the “solution” is going to be very bad for us.

      • Viking B*tch just reblogged my post on her site. I would post her entire comment here for her, but it’s somewhat rough. Thus, here’s a small part of her response:

        “Scary stuff.

        This need for the Multi Cult to paint normal behavior such as wanting to be with one’s own race on the part of White people and (GASP!) white babies as pathological is just another sick attempt to hound Whites into subjugation. Where is the study on black, Latino, and Asian babies?”
        You can read the rest on her site.

        • Viv J

          I’ll go check it out, thanks.

        • Conrad

          If such a study on blacks was conducted, and they preferred white children, it would prove that they are natural born parasites.

          She is awesome, I have to say.

      You can probably look them up quite easily. I’m going to do so myself. This is making my blood boil!

  • Tim_in_Indiana

    In other words, it’s something that’s inborn and natural and not something that’s learned.

    Another leftist fantasy bites the dust.

    • dcc2379

      Great point. If homosexuality is normal because it is inborn, then shouldn’t racism be afforded the same protection?

      • Anna Tree

        Except that science didn’t prove (yet) that homosexuality is inborn…

        • dcc2379

          Agreed! That’s why I added the if.

        • AndrewInterrupted

          A lot more is being written about gene “expression”. It turns out there is something called ‘soft inheritance’ aka epigenetics, that claims genes are switching into various modes long after birth. There was a gene related article here at Amren awhile back stating that genes of baby lab rats had expressed various ways depending on how many times the mother had licked them.

          Wouldn’t it be interesting if the explosion in the LGBTQ population was caused by–>feminist ideology. Wow!

          • Anna Tree

            This sounds plausible to me! Afterall is men are emasculated, mothers not motherly and the theory of gender put upbringings and more in question, it seems logic that it could mess a lot of kids.

            When I came to realize of the many brainwashings we are victims of and I started to read about all sides of different issues to make an opinion, I also read papers about epigenetics, hormonal deficiencies, numbers of older brothers, proteins, germs, H-Y antigen changes etc causes for homosexuality.

            The problem with all those explanations is that if homosexuality is not genetic and is a factor of a “malfunction” or an environmental pollution or a womb disbalance etc, then homosexuality shouldn’t be seen and of course promoted as normal, worse to children: on the contrary, we should want to help homosexuals and find a treatment/cure/drug to alleviate their symptoms. After all if they are ready to take tons of hormones all their lives and even undergoing drastic surgeries, shouldn’t some of them want to take a few hormones during their teenager years to match the sex they were born into? Sounds much less bothersome and dangerous to me… and that will spare a lot of misery and STDs and more.

            Because exactly as you said, there is an epidemy. Shouldn’t we try to stop the epidemy instead of boosting it?

          • AndrewInterrupted

            Many mutations occur at low frequencies. Albinism is something on the order of 1 in 17,000. Europeans may have originally become white by propagating albinos. Or they may have lost the melanin because it wasn’t needed.

            But, a gay gene doesn’t have much evolutionary purpose. And when the patriarchies were dictatorships only the strongest and most masculine leaders were allowed to procreate. The gay gene never had a chance to carry forward. So it could only naturally occur at a low frequency. Unless the mother carries it.

            The Liberals try disguising this obvious scientific conclusion by saying they’ve always been there in those numbers, just hiding from persecution. But, that is wishful projection, not science. The gay prevalence looks much higher than average. The list is long as to what new factors could be causing it, both before and after birth.

            Such factors as estrogen mimics, bpa, nonyphenol, etc. Also EMF and microwaves, or the stresses from being pregnant while employed, the absence of consistent, familiar, strong male voice. There are hundreds of variables. So, as you say, we might want to find prevention options if the prevalence is unnaturally high.

    “Babies Just 15 Months Old Show Racial Bias When Picking Playmates,”

    Personally, I think preferring a person’s own kind is a very natural trait that is embedded in each of us at birth. Only through repetitive psychological conditioning can that instinct be over ridden.

    Just as nature installed in each of us an instinct for survival and an instinct to perpetuate the species, which makes us naturally repulsed and disgusted with homosexuality, pedophilia and bestiality.

        YEs, I have said this myself. WE only really need to win once. By that I mean a complete takeover, with tight control of the media and culture for a period of time to allow the brainwashing to cease and people’s perceptions to become clear. THEY need a constant , everyday drumbeat. Shutting down the media for just a week would have a profound effect on most people. Once the pressure and reinforcement to conform to our enemies ideology ceases, many people will gladly switch to a new set of beliefs that reflect what they know inside.

        • Martel

          Its always important to take lessons from the neck breaking speed at which ”political correctness” was introduced in the anglophone world, a political evolution in the sixties only required a short amount of time to be injected throughout the western hemisphere. At that point in time, these ”revolutionaries” provided a great portion of Europeans and European Americans an outlet for their grievances. This will happen again in our favour.

          • BonV.Vant

            IT is also important to see how political correctness was implemented. A steady stream of propaganda in every media outlet. Time to shut that stream off.

          • Martel

            In general there is nothing to be concerned about any more, all the “roadblocks” have been heavily corroded and are about to collapse.

  • tetrapod

    Progressive interpretation:

    “However, we have no doubt that if the majority of tested babies were Asian, they would always favor the ‘fair’ researcher and never exhibit a racial preference for their own kind. Therefore no more research along these lines is required, which would take away resources needed to solve the intractable problem of caucasian racism”.

  • coco bongo

    Why wasn’t this test done with black babies? Were the researchers afraid of what they might find? I guess their suggestion will be miscegenation to cure racism, I mean, we can’t be racist if we’re all brown. Right?

  • Dave4088

    This just goes to prove that in the absence of brainwashing and mental conditioning by the government and media, whites would not be anti-racist leftist loons. Of course, the anti-white media will spin this as more proof that whites are born knotsies and bigots even though non-white toddlers would most likely prefer their own kind, too.

        Excellent. I hope not everyone puts his or her money on the Europeans though, Americans need to be less downtrodden about this issue.

    So-called “racism” is simply a survival mechanism that is programmed into all healthy Whites. As Whites get older, they are brainwashed and reprogrammed to override their natural survival mechanism program. Then, many brainwashed teen and adult Whites are so blind to reality that they walk right into their own deaths at the hands of non-Whites or they engage in bedroom genocide.

    It’s a worthy cause to try to deprogram the brainwashed Whites.

    • BonV.Vant

      Well, they are fed a steady diet of “holocaust” movies and stories, by female teachers and administrators. They are conditioned to “please mommy” and blindly attack anyone that threatens that mommy which gives them approval. Mommy doesn’t approve of bullies nor haters nor anyone who draws any distinctions at all, unless it is against the white man because mommy doesn’t like him.

  • BonV.Vant

    out of the mouths of babes…then some of those babies will grow up to be liberals, they will prey about diversity, but they will still find an all white burn somewhere.

  • BonV.Vant

    Studies like this are actually very good for our side. They wi9ll defeat the very spirit of liberals, they will show them that their cause is hopeless, that it is lost from day one. This is what they are trying to do to us now concerning immigration, telling us that it is already over, that we are on our way to becoming a minority. Heck no, it is not already over, nothing is over till it is over.

  • dcc2379

    This study is nonsensical and attempts to apply motives to decisions that are predicated off of a 15 month understanding fairness. In reality, most adults believe fairness is synonymous with equality, which is usually patently false. There are many complex variables at play here; were all toys liked equally; were all children cloned and possessed cloned parents that all robotically acted exactly alike to remove the chance of ecological variables? Did each researcher show the same warmth and, or compassion? Did each child have the same IQ, social skills, and other factors? The quote, “The researchers say this implies that babies can take into account both
    race and social history when deciding which person would make a better
    playmate,” is by far the biggest leap of logic one can see. Babies pick up social history and race, which means what exactly? What was and is social history? “. . . babies have self-motivated concerns too,” means that they are looking at the world from their own perspective? Hasn’t every researcher since the beginning of time said such thing about people of all ages, races, and social histories?

    Some have spoken of re-education camps and anti-bigot training, but I say we take this a step further and develop anti-racism intra-uterine campaigns for white mothers.

    • MBlanc46

      “In reality, most adults believe fairness is synonymous with equality”.

      On what evidence do you base this claim? I would say that fairness is correlation of outputs and inputs, and I’d guess that a majority of (white) Americans, anyway, would agree. Do you have empirical evidence to the contrary?

      • dcc2379

        Well, if you’d asked if I had conducted a study that stated “most adults believe,” I’d have told you that I’m making a qualitative judgment (that’s a fancy way to say I didn’t poll 200,000,000 adults to make this claim). But, you’ve asked a very different question that strikes at not output and input, but about the very concept of fairness and equality. Luckily, grin grin, I can produce empirical evidence for that, as the very concepts are different. Fairness means that there is an absence of bias or, in a broader sense, someone getting what they deserve, which can and does lead to a very different situation of equality. For example, is it fair and equal to provide a person in an accident lifesaving services at the emergency room? Well, it would be fair (or in all fairness) that the person in an accident needs this, but by the very nature, this is unequal. Well, if everyone had the same outputs and inputs, something of a fairy tale, then yes, fairness and equality would be the same thing. Back in the real world, I believe inequality is the very nature of fairness, and though you imply you disagree, I believe you misspoke (of course, one could use sophistry to say at each level of equality there is fairness, but such an argument means that everything unequal produces everything fair, which is quite a nihilistic argument!). Is it unfair the community that works has better schools than the community of welfare bums? Not equal, but fair.

        Back to the babies. Was it unfair if a baby wanted a particular toy? Possibly, but there is an assumption that all babies want all things equally; since no adult fits this category, how do we expect a baby to? Just imagine for a minute if this situation was replicated with food. This will never be done because fairness and equality cannot be applied to a situation where these terms now show that they are indeed often opposites.

        • MBlanc46

          I said pretty much what I intended to say: That I believe that fairness is a matter of people getting out of a system being related to what they put in; I suspect that that’s a pretty general opinion, but I don’t claim to have empirical evidence for the latter.

          • dcc2379

            Talking about what a person wants is difficult to compare with inputs/outputs, as wants know no such limits and has no inputs, just outputs. Still you eloquently agree with my very general opinion that fairness is a matter of the inequality borne out of what someone puts in. When a child in Detroit has a very run down school with missing textbooks and torn up buildings compared to Winnetka New Trier, is it fair that one has such an experience based off of his zip code? YES! I love inequality, and it is the nature of what is fair and right about the world. Obama and Democrats believe fairness and equality are the same, and in that world, redistribution is logical.

          • MBlanc46

            I don’t think that fairness and equality are the same thing at all. My possible point of difference is that I don’t believe that most other people think so, either.

          • dcc2379

            Professor Jessica Sommerville of the University of Washington said: ‘If all babies care about is fairness, then they would always pick the fair distributor, but we’re also seeing that they’re interested in consequences for their own group members.’

            Upon further reflection, I feel you are completely and utterly wrong about most people recognizing the difference. This entire article is predicated off the notion that fairness and equality are one and the same; since this is a faulty premise, I did not respond to the conclusion because conclusions based on faulty premises are generally null. Hence, I did not attempt to respond to the pseudoscientific claim that ascribed motive to different choices that May or may not be fair. There is even empirical evidence: Not one poster, including the Associated Press, pointed out this fallacy. If everyone knew fairness and equality are often diametrically opposed, then the academics could not in good faith utter such a telling contradiction unless they hoped no one would notice, which would not be likely on something so obvious.

            I wish you were right, even about white Americans. If you were, Obama’s speeches, and many other Democrats, would not engender millions upon millions of white votes when they talk about a “fair deal” as everyone being equal. President Obama uses both terms interchangeably so much that Conservative commentators have pointed it out. Did that drive away all those people who, as you claim, because everyone knows it is either a lie or false? As continued electoral support continues, such a claim would be incredulous. This article was incredulous because nary a one pointed out what you find obvious.

    This is evidence that whites are genetically racist. And only a good eugenics program to rid the world of the evil and inferior white race can fix the cancer.

      Everyone is “genetically racist”, excluding some exceptions. This is why victory is necessarily ours in the end, the question is what will be left.

  • FozzieT

    Too bad they didn’t include black babies in this test. They would probably pick the white researchers too. Then we would have proof, not of innate white racism, but innate preference for whites!

    • Guest

      Yeah, I can see it now…black babies going for da white wimminz. Why not, there was that two-year-old cussing like a sailor.

  • TL2014

    A friend from South Africa recently posted on FB a screenshot of a comment by a black South African about how black South Africans needed to “shoot the racist skulls of white babies”. Goodness help us all.

    There aren’t any significant results or consequences of these studies. Toddlers don’t have any sense of identity or awareness of what’s going on around them. Children don’t even build their first memories until about the age of 3, so those in the experiment won’t remember that they even did this.

    • I can remember my aunt’s little black Manx cat, and that from was when I was 18 months old. It intrigued me because it had no tail, so I followed it under a table. When I asked her about the cat years later, she looked as if I had just slapped her: “God, Michael, you weren’t even two!” My mother simply assumes I have adult memories dating back about that far. It’s a pretty accurate assessment. I was also reading at an adult level at age five. While I believe my ex-father was completely evil, he was also brilliant: he used to do crossword puzzles and cryptoquotes in pen because he didn’t make mistakes on these; he only made mistakes when dealing with people. If he came to my front door, I’d kill him in half, and he knows it.

      My mother says she doesn’t know where I got my hands; she says that while my ex-fathers hands were those of an artist, mine look like they belong on a serial-killer and that my knuckles are too big even for that. One of my ex-father’s earliest memories of his own father was of him lifting the V-8 engine out of their family car and carrying it across their garage. That would have been about 600-700 pounds, so maybe I have William’s hands. William was a heavyweight boxer after he got out of the army in 1931 – he won eight professional fights and lost six – and then worked at a steel mill, eventually marrying his foreman’s sister. He got into only one fight after his marriage, but he compound fractured the other guy’s femur where he punched him there. He died of a heart-attack when I was six months old, in late 1966.

      I remember my first kiss, Twee Trahn. She was Vietnamese and French, and her father worked my ex-father at Bell Labs in Holmdell, N.J. I was five.

      I suppose I am not really an orc, but that your statement about youngsters is not completely accurate.

        I can remember things for early childhood . . . .but, I was NEVER a whizzkid . . .
        had to study twice as hard to keep anything in the ol noggin . . .

      • Bob Wallace

        I have two memories of sitting in a high chair. Both times I was yet unable to talk.

        • Intrep1d

          That is scientifically impossible. In all likelihood you watched something, dreamt of something, or otherwise created this “memory” from another source. The only other explanation is that you’re misinterpreting what you remember.

      • Intrep1d

        So, your first kiss was with an Asian girl. You married a Japanese woman later, and yet you still want people to believe you’re mainly with an Asian woman to help keep whites pure? As you’ve probably guessed, I don’t put much faith in your credibility.

      • Intrep1d

        Apparently you and/or the mods don’t seem to like my comments, hence why they’re being removed despite not breaking any rules. Stay out of the fire if you can’t take the heat.

  • The natural order is anathema to multicultists, who flatter themselves that they can reshape mankind in their own image. Such is the malignant blight of pathological narcissism.

      I think elitists like inflicting blacks and minorities on other whites. It is just pure sadism.

    When I entered a well-known restaurant in my area today, I saw the most beautiful young white girl I have seen for the past couple of years. Her platinum blond hair was outstandingly beautiful and it was obvious that she always makes sure she is beautifully dressed in clean, lady-like outfits and takes great care of her hair. I feel disappointed whenever I see young white women wearing hoodies that look like she picked it up from inside a trash can after the original owner wore for seven years and threw out. Her brunette friend sitting beside her was also very beautiful.

    There also was a boy seated at her table, and it was a white boy, but he looked a little bit unintelligent…. but I came to the point that I should be happy and satisfied that the young white folks were not trying to be liberal hipsters and mingle with blacks

  • ViktorNN

    Therefore, anti-racism is unnatural, doomed to fail, unjust, and a monumental waste of time.

    Which we all knew already anyway.

  • Anna Tree

    I wish…

  • DudeWheresMyCountry?

    They trip themselves up here. Are they saying that Asian babies picked Whites too? If they are not saying this (they are not) their entire study is bogus and evil; it only seeks to try and find a racist outcome from White infants. Our enemies can’t really find racism from White people, so they resort to rigging tests so they can pretend White babies are racist. I would very much like to open hand slap the parents of all these children for allowing this abuse.

    • Andy

      The babies were all white. It was the researchers that were of different races.

  • Bad_Mr_Frosty

    There is actually a cognitive disorder called Williams Syndrome that leads to mild mental retardation. According to Wikipedia;

    “In one experiment, a group of children with Williams syndrome showed no signs of racial bias, unlike children without the syndrome”

    So there you have it. Showing no racial bias is actually a sign of a mental disorder.

    • Martel

      Reminds me of an Amren review titled Pathological Altruism, in which Williams Syndrome is discussed. Its a good article, and one of the first Amren articles I read.

    • BonV.Vant

      That dovetails with the latest news that marijuana use permanently elders the brain causing impaired judgement and reduced ability to focus. Libs are much more likely to be pot smokers or to have been pot smokers. Our people have been poisoned with something that has destroyed their minds.

  • blight14

    Nature instilled the code needed to discern safe vs. danger, this manifests at even a young age. This is merely further proof that self-preservation is coded in our DNA.

  • John R

    They had a story I just read of the reaction of a White cyclist who was attacked by blacks in Baltimore. Now, I read this story of babies’ racial bias early on. Conclusion? Liberals literally, “don’t have the sense they were born with!”

  • MooTieFighter

    This is far from new research. This has and will always be the way it is. This is also found among the animal community. Mothers of many animals will often eat/kill their own if it looks different. Survival is instinctual and we will tend to stay around those most genetically like us. Too bad for the P.C. indoctrinated that wish to create rapid white genocide, that they can’t indoctrinate them immediately at birth.

  • Bill

    Another slanted, truly racist “study”. I notice no blacks were involved as to the kids OR the monitors. And I also notice they ONLY played “unfair” by giving more to whites. So of course the whites (or anybody for that matter) is going to be smart enough to go with the one giving out the goodies favoring their own group. Thing is, when it is fair across the board with no bias entering in, same for all, Whites and Asians are content. Blacks and browns pitch a hissy fit and act out. Study THAT, nitwit professors.

    • Martel

      No offence Bill, but you are looking at this all wrong. Even if they have picked their subjects in a discriminatory fashion, this study, like most studies posted on Amren, substantiates our argument. The truth is that the misnomer “racism” describes a natural phenomenon. This is the only legitimate argument against immigration and forced multi ethnic integration. Studies like these make my day.

  • John Nutter

    First, to post as “anonymous” is to post as a coward!
    Second, to attempt to make someones past a current issue is to post as a BIGOT.
    People wake up and they change. To continually assault what you don’t like in someones past who has CLEARLY CHANGED is to be a religious or moral hypocrite.

    Your slam of VB is absolute BS. Something one should expect to hear from a TROLL.
    Your arrogant and pompous words won’t change my opinion of VB.
    She is one of the most lovable women on this planet and will always be more valuable than one who attacks from anonymity.

    Get a backbone or get off of MY planet!

    One blogger over at the DM wrote this comment (most comments getting many thumbs-up are pro-white, BTW):

    “…Char Vanessa, Castle On A Cloud, 5 days ago

    Maybe they are just more likely to pick the toys given to someone who reminds them of their parents. How can a baby think in that way ?…”

    That reminds me of the 1960s riots, when Black groups said that the Police dogs were trained to behave more aggressively toward Blacks. That may be true, but I bet it had more to do with the dogs not having seen many Blacks in the past. The Blacks were unfamiliar therefore threatening to the dogs.

    This happened to my family with our German Shepherds. I grew up in Lilly White USA, so on the rare occasions our German Shepherds encountered a Black person they went into a defensive, anxious alert mode.
