(Talking Points Memo)   Jason Richwine: I say, "Love your brother." Well, I don't literally say it. And no, I don't really literally mean it. And no, I don't literally believe it. But I'm not a racist. That message should be clear. I'm anything but racist   (livewire.talkingpointsmemo.com) divider line 160

I've never heard of anyone being fired from the Heritage Foundation for being too overtly racist and I've never seen anyone look so much like David Duchovny.

Isn't what he was doing the very definition of racism? Categorizing people's intelligence by the racial makeup? If that's not racist, what is?

I think what he means to say is "yes its racist, but its true!", but you can't say that these days. Poor baby.

Richwine also contributed articles on Hispanic carcaration rates for AlternativeRight.com, a white nationalist wbsite, and again spoke about his dissertation at an American Enterprise Institute panel in 2008. He told the Examiner that his remarks there lacked "nuance" and were therefore misconstrued.


What's the deal with all the typos? this looks like it was proofread by an non-white immigrant.

"The idea that I am some sort of foaming-at-the-mouth extremist never even crossed my mind."

Know who else's mind it never crossed?

'I also regret that I didn't think more about how the average lay person would perceive these things, as opposed to an academic audience."

Well, la-dee-frieakin-da!  Professor Egghead is sorry he didn't dumb it down for the unwashed masses.  Fkn elitist.

"It still amazes me that it would be me who is portrayed this way," he added. "I have a pretty good educational background, I have a good background in doing very good quantitative work. The idea that I am some sort of foaming-at-the-mouth extremist never even crossed my mind."

Oh this guy. He considers himself so educated but only thinks of racists as ignorant, math-hating, rabid, mentally unstable people.

It never crosses the mind of these subhuman bags of fark that maybe, just maybe, the solution to how much of a problem it is when someone calls them racist is NOT TO BE RACIST IN THE FIRST PLACE.

DamnYankees: If that's not racist, what is?


If I've learned anything from the current right-wing, the only thing that's racist is actively lynching minorities, and then only if you used a slur or two.

"I don't apologize for any of the things that I said," he said. "But I do regret that I couldn't give more detail. And I also regret that I didn't think more about how the average lay person would perceive these things, as opposed to an academic audience."
 

I think this is my favorite non-apology ever.  He's not sorry he said it; he's sorry you were too stupid to understand it correctly.  So the only way to think he's a racist is to be stupid.
 
2013-05-13 02:50:54 PM  
He isn't racist. He just doesn't want to have to see the minorities he thinks are genetically inferior to him on a daily basis.

I don't think so.  If you categorize people's intelligence by racial makeup, that's not yet racist.  The racist bit is to go on to say/conclude that inferior intelligence is inherent to the race.  It is quite common to demonstrate minorities have lower intelligence because of a whole multitude of factors that have nothing to do with being inherent to their race but rather unfair societal burdens.

This is true.  For instance, you prefaced your comment with "I am not a(n) _____" and what followed was indeed spectacularly derpy.

For real. I am a member of an academic audience that is interested in the research on the very topics he discussed. His conclusions about race and intelligence are so comically wrong that it's like he's the antagonist in an after-school special so bad it makes the anti-drug Cartoon All-Stars look like it was directed by Ang Lee.

"The accusation of racism is one of the worst things that anyone can call you in public life," Richwine told the  Washington Examiner's Byron York. "Once that word is out there, it's very difficult to recover from it, even when it is completely untrue.

"It still amazes me that it would be me who is portrayed this way," he added. "I have a pretty good educational background, I have a good background in doing very good quantitative work. The idea that I am some sort of foaming-at-the-mouth extremist never even crossed my mind."


By the way, if you say this when someone calls you a racist, then you are a racist.

I do enjoy the subtle dig at his critics.  "If you don't agree with my writing then you're just not academic enough to understand it."

Which is a very non-academic thing to say, but then the purpose of his "think tank" is to provide fodder for Fox News to report as truth. Dumb people love being told how intelligent they are.

TFA says he is a columnist of sorts on a site called Alternative Right.  Here are the first two paragraphs of the "Controversy and Criticism" section of AltRight's Wikipedia page:

AltRight has been subject to criticism from both the left and the right.  Examples of the former include the Southern Poverty Law Center, which has characterized the site as "yet another far-right magazine," as well as "loaded with contributors who...have long lamented the white man's decline."Conservative critiques include E.D. Kain's contention at True/Slant, that "the far-righters at Alternative Right represent the ugly -and yes racist - underbelly of 'alt' conservatism. This is white nationalism, folks, dressed up in faux-intellectualism."

In March 2010, Spencer was interviewed by Tim Mak of FrumForum, the online magazine of George W. Bush speechwriter David Frum. Mak concluded that AltRight's "ideas belong in some sort of padded room," and that its writers are "going to be white nationalists, but, by God, they're going to be a little fancy about it."


That sounds pretty dead on

I'm not defending the guy or his work, based on a few assumptions I'm betting he is a racist.  I admit I don't have evidence for that, and this article at face value isn't it.  I'm only defending the practice of doing studies grouping populations by race.  Black people have lower SAT scores.  That's not racist, that's a fact.  It's critical in society we can say things like that without being called racist, or we'll never figure out the nature of the problem and address it.

I agree on both parts.  Him being a possible racist and the permissability of looking at "ugly" factors based around racial groupings.
