Contemplating "Unfortunate Truths and Opinions"

(Thanks, Dulce Vita!)

Truth

As if we didn't see this coming, Psychology Today has issued an apology for publishing the racist ramblings of Dr. Housebroken.  Quoted from the Atlantic Wire:
Last week, a blog post about race and appearance by Satoshi Kanazawa was published--and promptly removed--from this site. We deeply apologize for the pain and offense that this post caused. Psychology Today's mission is to inform the public, not to provide a platform for inflammatory and offensive material. Psychology Today does not tolerate racism or prejudice of any sort. The post was not approved by Psychology Today, but we take full responsibility for its publication on our site. We have taken measures to ensure that such an incident does not occur again. Again, we are deeply sorry for the hurt that this post caused.
Now, I personally don't give a shit; if you ask me, "I'm sorry" is rapidly becoming one of the most meaningless phrases here in the West.  "I'm sorry" is not what you say to express remorse; it's what you say to shut people up and get them off your back.  Notice the focus on the readers' reactions - "pain", "offense", "hurt" - which is typical when apologizing while white.  I'd be more impressed with, "We were negligent and irresponsible, and Dr. Housebroken has been summarily dismissed from our staff."

Anyhoo, the comments on the Atlantic Wire were what intrigued me.  Notice how white males came out in force to defend Dr. Housebroken.  This is what I was talking about in "Irony of the Slave": focus on the white agenda behind the words, and not their actually utterer.  This is why I added a video of Malcolm X and one of his most famed speeches.  To refresh your memories, here's that segment again:


So when Sam Cacas - Filipino-American writer and activist Sam Cacas whose name is considered to be almost a holy word throughout the Blasian world - when Sam Cacas ventures forth to speak about unity, communication, understanding, and acceptance between blacks and Asians, or when Filipino-American professor Dr. Jody Blanco speaks out against racism towards black people...a housebroken wannabe like Kanazawa is sent out to undermine all their work, and we're supposed to believe his actions are entirely his own.  We're supposed to pretend we don't notice his international platform is provided by whites, his "work" is funded by whites, and his conclusions serve a white agenda.  We're supposed to believe that white worship really is in the best interest of POC...but that white folks have Absolutely Nothing to do with pushing that agenda.

Uh-huh.  Yeah.  Okay.

And here is where we reach the issue of truth: has anyone else noticed that whenever some badly done study comes out and its conclusions - quite predictably - support the white heterosexual (often male) agenda, those conclusions are quickly declared an "unfortunate truth" which the rest of us are supposed to just swallow without question?

People, here are examples of real "unfortunate truths".  Ironically, the first one comes from Dr. Housebroken's "work" itself:
Moreover, Kaufman noted that "the majority of [Kanazawa's] data were based on the ratings of attractiveness of the participants when they were teenagers." When the data was stratified based on age, he concluded that "as adults, Black Women in North America are not rated less attractive by interviewers of the Add health study."
There's your first unfortunate truth. Even at the subjective level, chocked full of free will and rights to their own opinions, raters still didn't place black women in North America as less attractive than other women.  So not only do we find ourselves attractive, but whattaya know...non-black folks agree with us, and Dr. Housebroken deliberately left that out of his conclusions.

Wow.  *shakes head*

Here's another unfortunate truth, kids:  Alexandra Wallace had to pack her shit and leave UCLA after her anti-Asian rant, because she knew that sooner or later she'd have every square inch of her ass kicked.  Oh...she initially thought she'd walk off scot free, but instead she wound up paying some major consequences.  And this might be the most unfortunate truth of all to white folks: people of color have a right to disagree with your opinions.  We don't have to respect the fact that they're your opinions; that's irrelevant.

Welcome to the 21st Century.  Suck it up and deal.

Opinion
"The recipe for perpetual ignorance is: Be satisfied with your opinions and content with your knowledge.”
~ Elbert Hubbard
The white folks rushing to Dr. Housebroken's defense are all crying the same thing: he has a right to his opinion and that doesn't make him a racist, and that political correctness has "run amok."

Let's try this one more time: Kanazawa was paid by a (supposedly) scientific institution to conduct a scientifcally objective study.  He was not paid to give his opinion, much less to ignore his own results in order to support that opinion.  If Psychology Today had just wanted opinions, they could've surfed the blogosphere on their own, copied, pasted, and linked opinions for free.

Now, according to the Atlantic Wire, the student union of the London School of Economics (where Kanazawa is employed full-time) voted unanimously in favor of his dismissal - unanimously.  Was it because of the negative press and how it diluted their school's credibility?  Sure.  But another important reason to consider has to do with the type of people involved: mathematicians.  See, in their world, 1 + 1 = 2, and "opinion" doesn't have a goddamn thing to do with it.  They don't have time for the subjective ramblings of a racist who's making their entire school look bad.

Furthermore, if whistle-blowers can get fired, then racists should be at the very top of the list.  I notice that certain people tend to neglect this little double standard, but I won't.  If you can get fired, demoted, or penalized in any way for outing the racists, homophobes, transphobes, and sexists at your job, then the people you out should be fired right before you.

Lastly, a racist opinion doesn't magically lose its racism simply because it's an opinion.  White folks really are clinging to their opinions these days, I tell you.  Personal opinions are, after all, one's final refuge; they don't require logic, experience, understanding, wisdom, or deep thinking of any kind.  You don't have to listen to anyone else, see things from another perspective, learn anything at all, or inconvenience yourself in any way when it comes to your opinions.

Hence the perpetual ignorance.

Now...in my opinion....

Amidst all the white men's complaints of "ghetto", "loud", and "obese" black women, one commenter on the Atlantic Wire article said something about how after all, it seems to be okay when black women dismiss white men as unattractive, and that they're entitled to their opinions.  Sure...but while the white male commenters were having a field day devaluing black female bodies - much like their ancestors did, mind you - they failed to understand why black women tend to find white men to be so unattractive.

The white male reaction to the possible dismissal of Dr. Housebroken is precisely why I personally tend to rate white men as the gods' least attractive creatures.  It has nothing to do with the physical; as Neo-Prodigy can attest, I could look at and listen to Tom Felton all day, every day (by the way, notice that I didn't pick a dude who's only half-white or a quarter and two cents...).

No, no, no...it's the whining factor.  It ruins BW/WM for me, when I could be writing glorious volumes about that combination.

See, there's a reason why when heterosexual black women consider interracial dating, their minds almost automatically turn to other men of color.  Why?  Men of color are battle-tested.  They're used to fighting uphill.  They're used to dealing with glass ceilings, harassment from authorities, racial microaggressions, racial macroaggressions, and other socioeconomic obstacles deliberately thrown their way - by white males, no less.

For example, McCain was born in friggn' Panama, but I don't recall any willingness to show his birth certificate when he was running for President.  Nor do I recall him formally being asked to.

To be on a level playing field is a man of color's dream come true.  However, to be on a level playing field is a white man's worst nightmare, and that is unattractive beyond words.  A man who breaks down and cries in the face of challenge is hardly a man at all.

Now is the perfect time for white men to quit playing Spartacus or Lucian or whoever, and actually be the strong men they like to insist they are.  The changing dynamics of our world present the perfect test to prove what they're really made of - not just to everyone else, but to themselves - and yet already they are failing pathetically.

White people can no longer comfortably sit back and say, "Some day, the races will be equal.  Some day, we will a minority.  Some day, we will begin to lose our privilege.  But until then...."  Um, "some day" is today, and white men in particular are not handling it well.

That's why they need all these convenient little studies to put white women and people of color back in their places.  It's not enough to tell black women they're ugly; they want us to believe it as well, and then get upset when we don't.  It's not enough to suggest that all women should forego college and careers; they want us to believe it's in our best interest to do so, and then get annoyed when we disagree with that assessment.

Don't even get me started on the issue of women and sexuality again....

And when pseudo-science fails, and their true colors are revealed, white men cry "opinion, opinion" and then try to slither away to safety.  This is the mark of a deep, rotting inner weakness which is repulsive beyond all imagining.  This is the sign of an inability to handle life without a silken safety net, an air-conditioned escape route, and a 450-year headstart.

*shudder*

  3. K, I can't focus on the post when you keep distracting me with the deliciousness. ;-)

    "For example, McCain was born in friggn' Panama, but I don't recall any willingness to show his birth certificate when he was running for President. Nor do I recall him formally being asked to."

    Who was born where?!!!!!! AWWW HELL TO THE NO!!!!!!!!!!

    I remember when that shit came out last week and people kept pointing to "doc's" ethnicity and as I mentioned to several folks, don't get it twisted. Just because he's a POC who is engaging in racism, doesn't mean that he's doing something that white folks haven't been doing for centuries.

    And like you I saw right through that shit. He's catching all the heat (and rightfully so) but the white folks who allowed that shit to get posted are getting a pass.

    Also wanna know what else is telling. Legions of white feminists who were conveniently silent on this issue.

    Call a white woman out on her bullshit, and they come out of the woodwork to bawww over "anti-woman" sentiment but when WOC, notably black women are flat out denigrated, you don't hear a gawd damn peep.

    Bingo. Dr. Housebroken's been writing this type of bullshit for years. Someone had to be paying for all these "studies". Even the London School of Economics knew exactly what they were hiring when they offered him the job.

    But now, all of a sudden, they're acting "shocked" and throwing Kanazawa under the bus to save their own skin - pun intended.

    K, I can't focus on the post when you keep distracting me with the deliciousness. ;-)

    He said "fucking." In that video he said "fucking" and I'd never heard him curse before.

  7. Omg that article. I laughed when I read it. I don't get it. It seems like women of color are public enemy number one in the media lately. Im not sure why. And I don't believe in the good intentions of white female feminists because their unity never seems to apply when women of color are dealing with sexist and misogynistic crap. They are often silent when the first lady is attacked and I dabble occasionally in fandom and when characters of color who are female get vile treatment suddenly no one has anything to say. As for black women being attractive well im a black woman who has dated several men of other races including white. It wasn't white men not being attractive that often ruined it for me, it was the comments that would come out their mouths. For example I was once asked about how good my" oral" skills were because women like me were supposedly good at that. Also I have longish less tightly curled hair so that's lead to what else besides black are you etc. Let me say that those comments didnt make me want a second or third date. But my favorite was a guy in college who said he really liked my lips and if I was willing to please him he would take me out for pizza and beer. I guess that was his idea of asking me on a date. Luckily not all of them were like that but I could see some women not wanting to try again after stuff like that.

    I don't think they're sitting back comfortably. I think they're trembling. They are afraid as hell of losing their privileges which is why they continue demonizing POC.

    Fuck them bitches. Their sense of unity really doesn't apply when WoC are being attacked because to an extent, like white men, they want don't want to have to deal with any competition either.

  10. "Didn't they try to edit the title first before they finally realized it just wasn't going to work? "

    Here lies the arterial root of my annoyance. They allowed it to be posted, tried to modify the title to help minimize damage (smart move there, PT!), rather than send Housebroken packing in the first place with a very firm side-eye. Their initial actions makes this mea culpa more of a farce than it already is.

    American white men are the least attractive to me. They have this unwarranted arrogance/insecurity that is just off putting to me.

    They'll be so ignorant of anything about the world and so unaware of how stupid they sound most of the time. eeeew!

  14. The "apology" jazz from PT is really getting quite tiring and lame. I'm not convinced of them being sincere. I don't buy it and since the good "doctor"(Oops! did I actually call him that?) haven't formally did it himself, far as I'm concerned, the I'm sorrys coming from them are good as dead.PT knew what they were doing and then they want to pretend that they are sympathetic to us? Yeah..uh huh...heard those words before.

    Reading about his supposed evolutionary psychology blog is beyond laughable. As a third grader, my class was just starting to learn how to differentiate facts from opinions. I attempted to do a small paper( I forget the title of it) of what was supposed to be facts. What I thought was going to be an A paper end up being a potential F one and having to redo it because I did a Dr. Kanazawa number..attempting to make opinions as facts without realizing it. That was my English class! If he can make science with that it just goes to show the incompetency that comes from their magazine.

  15. @Student.

    I've noticed this too. Generally speaking European and Canadian men tend to have more home training in regards to these issues. They actually adore POCs and find us attractive and aren't shamed or afraid to say it either.

    Also, it's been my experience that European and Canadian men are better equipped in other areas, if you know what I mean. And I've had enough of a sampling to qualify it too.

  17. The post was not approved by Psychology Today, but we take full responsibility for its publication on our site.

    I don't believe a word of that shit. Unless it is an opinion piece (which Dr. Asshole's writing most certainly was), then it is peer-reviewed prior to publication. Unless I have crash-landed in a place where professional journals don't require submissions to be peer-reviewed, then I call shenanigans on PT's bullshit-ass apology and explanation. They aren't sorry they posted the article. They're just sorry they got busted for it.

    It's a damn good thing I don't need anyone to validate me. I know who I am. It's an even better thing that I associate with women who also don't require validation. They know who they are. If every woman felt the same, then articles and "studies" like Dr. Asshole's would carry absolutely no weight.

    Ladies, you don't need individuals without vaginas to tell you if you are beautiful or not. Fuck it. You don't need anyone to tell you who you are and if you're attractive or not. The mirror should be the only one telling you.

    Love this post. Excellent, excellent, excellent. Have a Gummi Bear martini on me, kiddo.

  18. @ M - For my research paper, I had to fact check, double-check AND cite every last bit of source material I used. Every thing I mentioned or quoted had to be backed by evidence. On top of that, I had to submit drafts to be reviewed before I could even think of sending a final copy to print.

    Apparently, that's more than this 'scientist' did, and I'm working for a BFA degree. Isn't that something?

    ReplyDelete
  19. Now, I personally don't give a shit; if you ask me, "I'm sorry" is rapidly becoming one of the most meaningless phrases here in the West. "I'm sorry" is not what you say to express remorse; it's what you say to shut people up and get them off your back.

    Reminds me of South Park’s portrayal of Tony Hayward

    There are many white males who share Kanazawa’s views privately so he can’t be racist (In their eyes). To call him out on his racism is to bring their personal biases into question. I really don’t know what a person has to do to be called a racist by white men any more. If he’s white, wearing a white robe while setting a cross on fire, and hollering nigger at the top of his lungs; white males will simply call him an asshole. Or, say, he did a stupid thing; or he had a lapse in judgment. But you can’t say he’s racist. Almost never will they use the R word to describe a fellow Caucasian. Or in this case, one who’s been given honorary white status by having his head buried shoulder deep up the white man’s butt.

    By way of publication, popular media and pseudo scientists the white man controls the racial narrative. He hasn’t changed in over 400 years and there’s no reason to believe he ever will. It’s as if the racist gene (or the bigot-t cell) is passed on from parent to child down through the generations. In right-winged conservatives this gene tends to manifest itself at the onset of puberty. But in liberal whites it seems to occur unexpectedly like a cold sore. It will fester for a period and then fade into oblivion until the next outbreak. With all of our boasts and bombast we are still one of the most racist nations on the face of this planet. The white man has a position to protect and he doesn’t give a damn any more.

  26. @Marona, I'm not one to kiss and tell but since you asked.

    More than once, I was repeatedly told by white Canadians while up in Vancouver, "OH YOU'RE REALLY GOING TO BE POPULAR UP HERE!"

    I didn't know what they meant, but boy did I figure it out quickly. The white Canadians didn't treat me like some dirty little secret like White Americans do here. Up there, being black and sexy was actually a badge of honor. One made of Vibranium (any Black Panther fans?).

    Now I didn't "intentionally" choose a hotel that was literally across the street from a bathhouse, but it made things convenient.

    And let me put it this way, my hotel room got more visitors than Disney World, the week I was up there.

    Greatest birthday vacation EVER!!!!!

    Oh and check this. When I was walking downtown in Vancouver at night, I actually passed a police cruiser. Two white cops inside. I froze up on instinct because I didn't know if they were going to try to kick my ass. They smiled and went on doing paperwork in their car.

    It was like being treated like a human being. I'm not saying Canada is perfect but I'll take it over the states any day.

    And people wonder why I want to relocate up there.

  28. As always, Ankh, your posts are quite refreshing and always on point. I really despise when sites like PT try to save face after the fact instead of checking this bull-crap beforehand. To me, they are very much to blame for why this article posted.

    And of course, you had your people that try to justify their opinion thru Mr. Housebroken (love it!) as if this shitt was indeed fact!

    As an IR dater myself, I've also lost all respect for American men in general. I look forward to traveling to see how those men across the lake are faring when it comes to the beauty of women of color. American men (especially white males)are such cowards that I hardly take them seriously.

    What I love about being a black woman is that we saw this mess coming a mile away and we expressed our outrage in a way that was a force to be reckoned with. I hope that we can continue to fight for our voices to be heard and we will not take this shit lying down.

    I already relocated and I am loving it baby! And yes white men, men in general up here are hip to the game when it comes to PoC. White men in general will tell you " I love black women." And will step to you correctly with good game.

    I can't tell you how many times men of all races will tell me what a beautiful WOMAN I am.

    I was leaving the grocery store the other day messing around with my bags and I see this guy staring at me.

    And of course I'm like....WTF is he looking at?

    So I smile at him nervously and he's standing there with his friend and his friend turns around and smiles at me.

    Him: Don't mind me...I was just enjoying the view. You're very beautiful that's all.

    I walk away I heard him say to his friend: "That was a hot girl."

    But my guard was up just like you and it turns out it was for nothing.

    It's kind of sad that as a person of color I'm so used to being excluded/ignored/treated hostile that when people actually treat me like a regular person it's some kind of luxury. So silly right?

    Even this Maltese- Canadian girl that I'm friends with said to me "I could never imagine going somewhere that only had white people. I would feel so uncomfortable."

  31. Chiming in *late* to express appreciation for a great post (and subsequent discussion.)

    The thing I like the most is how you identify ALL of the culpable and complicit parties here (i.e. the journal, the funding, the willing audience etc.) I just find it beyond cowardly, wimpy and passive aggressive when organisations put out articles and supposed 'info' that is hostile and clearly designed to damage specific groups and then calmly retreat behind faux-apologies and pretend that they are are attending to the trivial business of soothing hurt 'fee-fees' (because that's really what's at stake here x eye roll x).

    Everytime one of these institutions does something wrong and outright immoral they always roll out the hollow rhetoric about how they "don't tolerate 'x, y and z'" when it's clear as DAY to anyone with half a functioning brain cell that they not only tolerate it, but aid, abet and stoke it. It's almost like a mindless reflex when they do that. Who, do they honestly think they are kidding with that crap?

    We're not stupid. Doh. We saw what you did and simply making statements of 'erasure' doesn't magically alter your actions or the fact that we saw them and recognise them for what they are. I swear sometimes that dealing with white double think and and institutional speak is like dealing with a two year old playing a game of peek-a-boo hiding behind their hands. Since they can't see anything they assume that nobody can see them ....

    It's just so pathetic.

    On the other hand, I think they are so ruthless and calculating that they figure that whatever blowback they get with blatantly FALSE reports is well worth the risk, because hey: they got in their little blow and the damage is already done and the stink lingers in the air.

    So-called journals and what have you are just another form of media and people know how to work him.

    Dr. Housebroken, as you've dubbed him, is just a pawn. While I'm glad he got kicked to the curb as he so richly deserved, it's not as if he's working alone.

  32. You shot me with this! This article hits the bullseye on so many levels I cant even begin.

    But I'll try right here:
    "...See, there's a reason why when heterosexual black women consider interracial dating, their minds almost automatically turn to other men of color. Why? Men of color are battle-tested. They're used to fighting uphill. They're used to dealing with glass ceilings, harassment from authorities, racial microaggressions, racial macroaggressions, and other socioeconomic obstacles deliberately thrown their way - by white males, no less."

    Now I understand myself. You see, I've gotten in blog fights with women who say that black women should just kick the black man to the curb for all the ish. But many sisters rather be A-LONE than hook up with a white man.

    Before, I couldn't articulate why, but I did feel this down past my soul to my DNA. And I knew other sisters felt it too. I thought, there are some good lucking white boys, but....

    Now I really understand myself and my sisters just that much better.

    The thing is, we have to learn all our healthiest options. If black men aren't working out, white men aren't the automatic other option, despite what America would have us think. There are BILLIONS of POC on this planet, and BW in America need to open their eyes to them.
