Grey Lady Fumbles in Africa

    Joel Kotkin got it right: tribes and tribalism are too big to ignore, and not just in Africa. Hbd* chick extends the argument to include kinship in general — she’s a great source of mind-changing information on the importance of the varying degrees of consanguinity in all societies including our own.

    In fact differences in outbreeding coefficients is one of the big things that distinguish European societies and America (and that helps explain where we lie in relation to Europe on the libertarian-welfare state axis).

    Brush up on your biology everybody. Human biodiversity is not just — or even mostly — about race. The interactions between genes and culture are fundamental, and not just for abstract understanding but for realistic policy planning.

    WRM, how much has post World War II Territorial Integrity decisions for much of colonial Africa influenced ongoing civil chaos?

    Didn’t the Grey Lady decide decades ago that the only ethnicity that mattered enough to raise was white, so they could simultaneously dismiss it as atavistic bloodthirstiness characteristic of the race?
