- Medical Evidence
Anyone with working eyes can see that race is not merely “skin deep” / “skin color” / “just a melanin level” / etc. The only reason that this self-delusion is so widespread in Western society is due to decades of intense propaganda, indoctrination, and the colossal social pressures and punishments that people receive for questioning the narrative. The narrative is so insanely stupid that it almost feels ridiculous to use scientific evidence to refute it — but I will anyway.
Alongside attributes such as skin and hair color, there are immediately obvious morphological (physical) differences between the races. Differences in facial bone structure, for example, instantly disprove the “race is only skin deep” myth. Professionals from a wide range of fields (coroners, forensic anthropologists, and so on) are capable of identifying the ethnicity of skeletons based on skull shape alone. This also applies to identifying a skeleton’s gender.
3. Medical Evidence
The anatomical differences (i.e., the internal morphological differences) between races are by no means superficial or merely aesthetic.
The dire, real-world consequences of denying the reality of race are exemplified in modern medicine: Some races or ethnic groups are biologically predisposed (or genetically predisposed, same thing) to inherit specific illnesses or to be more susceptible to certain types of infectious diseases. This even applies to mental illnesses (the brain is an organ too). Genetic variations common to Ashkenazi Jews mean that they are 40% more likely to develop schizophrenia and related illnesses. These sorts of genetic predispositions are not unique to humanity, and can be found in all living organisms; consider the hereditary ailments of certain dog breeds, for example.
The impact of race on medicine is exemplified by racial complications in transplant surgeries. Simply put, you can’t mix-and-match body parts from different races. If you put a white organ in a black body, it will almost certainly be rejected, and vise versa.
To successfully transplant an organ onto or into another person, the donor needs to be a genetic match — i.e., of the same race, or ideally, ethnic group. As a result, mixed-race people have an incredibly difficult time finding suitable transplant donors.
Don’t take my word for it, listen to the medical professionals:
Finally, a 2011 study by Wu and Zhang, ‘Different level of population differentiation among human genes,’ demonstrated that pigmentation between human groups varies far less than neurological differences. In other words, the biggest difference between races are our brains, not our skin.
From this we can infer that what distinguishes races most are our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. They may not be the most immediately obvious differences, but they are the most dramatic.
One very prominent and quantifiable behavior that most (if not all) right-wing people should be familiar with is criminality. Certain races and ethnic groups are grossly over-represented in certain types of criminal activities (or criminal activities in general). Races’ average levels of criminality are consistent around the globe, regardless of which country or what type of society they currently inhabit. Their crime rates are not mitigated by environmental factors (e.g., education, poverty). Multiple biological factors contribute to this trend, such as lower IQ, high time preference, lower risk aversion, and so on. More on racial crime statistics in this article.
The subject of race and behavior is colossal and would require a separate article to fully articulate, but I recommend that you take a look at J. Philippe Rushton’s book ‘Race, Evolution, and Behavior.’
