Thanks to N’Jaila Rhee, who posted an article from Psychology Today that looks like it has since been taken down from their website. It was called Why Are Black Women Less Physically Attractive Than Other Women, and it was written by Satoshi Kanazawa, who, as most of you know, is a prominent evolutionary psychologist at the London School of Economics. I unfortunately didn’t get a chance to read it on the original site, but I saw tons of comments and blog posts by people who had, and I have no reason to doubt that it was up there. Being the age of the internet, someone copied it before it went down. You can read it here, and I’m going to repost it below (I think I can legally do this since it’s no longer available at the source. If not, I’ll take it down.). Kanazawa gets all “scientific,” and his “science” becomes his fact. He doesn’t stop to think that the social sciences rarely if ever provide universal truths, and yet he accepts them as such:
It is very interesting to note that, even though black women are objectively less physically attractive than other women, black women (and men) subjectively consider themselves to be far more physically attractive than others.
Oh, they are? “Objectively?” So if abagond says that he prefers black women, are we to assume that he’s just…wrong? Because his opinions clash with something that is “objectively” true?
Kanazawa eventually comes a similar conclusion to Steve Sailer, that black women are less attractive because they have more testosterone and are therefore more manly. We Asian men know the reverse side of this, as the militant members of the AFCC and the Rice Chasers are always always telling us that we’re less masculine and that therefore White is Right. And so it’s troubling that this prominent psychologist is using his post to spread ideas which by no means are objectively true.
That’s the problem with some of these social scientists, as well as some of these “Human Biodiversity” hacks who imagine themselves to be experts on the human condition. They take an old idea, try to repackage it as something new, and then refuse to deviate from their chosen path. They don’t open themselves up to what the world can teach them, and then they foist their unscientific ideas onto the public. (Speaking of which, check out a good TED talk on being wrong.)
