The Jap scientist Satoshi Kanazawa has provoked a flurry of controversy by publishing a blog article claiming that black women are less physically attractive than other women and speculating on the reasons for this. Japs are interesting in that they have clearly reached comparable levels of civilisational development to the European world yet are not a part of it. Thus, while European countries (including Europe's colonial offshoots) are busy committing suicide by allowing the mass immigration of non-Europeans, the Japs have sanctioned almost no immigration into their country. The mind virus of political correctness has clearly not been loosed there.

That is clearly one reason why this Japanese scientist talks with a candour that westerners find astonishing. The article about black women was removed from the Psychology Today site after others made a fuss about it, predictably denouncing it as racist. You can read it here if you want. It strikes me as impossible to evaluate with the information provided, as there is no indication of who was responsible for assessing the attractiveness of the various people; in particular there is no indication of what their own genetic origins were, and this could well be a significant influence on their own perception of attractiveness. Of course, in any case, it is absurd to morally rebuke people for spontaneously-made aesthetic judgements or for reporting those judgements. These perceptions are instinctive rather than consciously willed or morally chosen. Not long ago, the Guardian was reprimanding some English band for not showing enough of a "black" influence in their music. Insane!

The Guardian writer asks the absurd question:

Could colonialism or slavery ever have been justified without these and other pseudoscientific claims?

Muslims practised colonialism and slavery for more than 1000 years without advancing any scientific claims to justify it. Their bogus death cult was apparently all the justification they needed. But of course this long tale of imperial exploitation and oppression, vanishing remnants of which can still be seen today in, for example, the persecution of the Copts in Egypt, has essentially been erased from public memory. European imperialism, which generally lasted for around 60-70 years in Africa and 40 or so years in the Middle East, is seen as having created a debt burden of guilt so vast that it can never be paid off; while Islamic imperialism, which lasted far longer, and was far more inherently pernicious, is usually not even acknowledged to have existed; or, where it is acknowledged, is claimed to have been uniquely tolerant and virtuous, as in the "Convivencia" myths about Al-Andalus, Muslim-ruled Spain.

On another occasion, the Jap scientist himself had some interesting things to say about Muslims. You can read his article "What's wrong with Muslims?" here. He makes the point that Muslims see themselves as Muslims before they see themselves as anything else, and this makes them virtually unique in the world. This is one of the reasons why, in my view, when sane governments come to power in future, they should put Muslims into a special category of their own. The nominal nationality of Muslims should be disregarded, and they should instead be treated as citizens of a non-physical country called the Ummah. Of course, citizens from the Ummah should be subject to especially stringent regulations.
