A few remarks regarding the "genetics" conversation:
-The pattern of alleged adults, jumping to definite conclusions using specious reasoning and badly digested, hand-picked research they haven’t read, gleefully saying that “this wouldn’t be well received in some milieus, know what I mean, wink wink”, smugly affirming some sort of rebellious outsider perspective and dropping hints of victimhood (same people who don’t understand why they can’t say nigga and really need to tell you) is really the obscene spectacle of the anal stage, little baby forum asshole is offering the performance of playing with his feces to negate parental authority, in this case some sort of perceived progressive Big Other (the inchoate coupling of the MSM, academics and politicians) formally prohibiting him from enjoying racist discourse, in effect encouraging him to “do it”.
-Traditional racism is heterophobic; it is pseudo-universalist in the sense that it rejects differences better to evaluate and rank humans using a series of criteria, often physical (skin colour, shape of skull etc.), associated with diverging degrees of race-linked biological quality. Newer forms of racism are heterophilic; they tend to celebrate cultural differences but to underscore the complete Otherness of various cultures, the impossibility of comparing them leading to the idea of complete incompatibility. The Arabs are fine, but they need to stay in the ME because their culture is entirely Other and cannot be mixed with ours, by essentializing sociological and anthropological differences it is possible to both proclaim the beauty of various cultures and deny any common ground that may permit harmonious encounters. What I find interesting is that the old, almost completely disappeared racism seems to be back with a vengeance, if I am to go by this thread.
-I am wondering if a return of primitive racism (it came first as tragedy and returned as farce, to paraphrase my man Marx) might not be a sign of an opening of some positive potentialities: the revival of a pseudo-universalism than can be “worked through” toward an emancipatory universalist agenda. Maybe we’re getting some signs that the corpse of “Ideology” might live once more and could be transformed into a newer, more positive project. I might also be full of shit in the "we don't see the world as it is but as we are" category…
