Dr. Park: Oh hi there! Come in, please. Here, put on this lab coat and protective eyewear. Welcome — to Unamusement Park’s Center for Research On Craziness Occasioned by Pointed Observations of a Racial Nature and Its Practical Uses and Benefits: the newly operational C.R.O.C.O.P.O.R.N.I.P.U.B., funded by your generous donations to the Carlyle Club and […]

I could have written a long essay spelling out every connection between the following nine items, but it just isn’t necessary. The connections are obvious, and so is the conclusion: that the state of racial discourse in this country has never been more dismal. Item (1): “Free speech covers all, even the primitive” (Charlotte Observer, […]

From Psychology Today, six days ago (H/T Sofia): “Want to know what ‘race’ is or isn’t? Don’t ask the dictionary!” by Dr. Mikhail Lyubansky, a psychology professor at the publicly funded University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. The article is about what you would expect from the author of “A Manifesto Against Truth.” (For my take […]

BULLETIN (2011-06-05): The War on Hate escalated early Tuesday afternoon, as fighting broke out along the Unamusement Park-Sociological Images border. Sources say the ‘Park’s Hate Battalion Delta (HBD or “The Fighting Sofias”) crossed into Images-controlled Race-Differences-in-Attractiveness Valley, where they encountered elements of the 2nd Diverse Minority Battalion, attached to the 4th White-Opposed Race Denialists (2-DMB […]

I am reminded of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s line from the classic film “Commando” (1985). As I recall, he was eating breakfast with a very young Alyssa Milano: Why don’t they just call him Girl George? It would cut down on the confusion. Wait, that’s not right. No, he had just shot Sharon Stone in the head […]

By now, you are probably aware of evolutionary psychologist Satoshi Kanazawa’s latest thought-crime, “Why Black Women Are Less Physically Attractive Than Other Women” (May 15, since retitled and deleted). The reaction to Kanazawa’s research has been generally idiotic. Consider the Daily Mail’s pathetic coverage in “‘Black women are less attractive than others’: Controversial LSE psychologist […]

Starlette McNeill of the Daily Race has stumbled across Unamusement Park’s secret hate laboratory in the course of her spiritual pilgrimage/intrepid sleuthing, just like in that Nancy Drew book. You know, “Nancy Drew and the Secret of White Racial Consciousness”? Fortunately, she — I mean Mrs. McNeill, not Miss Drew — hasn’t yet uncovered our […]

My series of short essays debunking race denialism continues. Hopefully you’re not bored of this exercise yet. Someone’s got to answer their arguments, no matter how weak, in case there’s some race denialist or race agnostic out there who’s following the debate and keeping an open mind. Even slightly open. Ajar. Frankly I’d settle for […]

Today I begin a new series of short essays debunking race denialism. This series is distinguished by its eclectic approach: for each essay, I will analyze one major or recurring error, rather than picking apart every fabrication and fallacy in one text (as I did in this post, this post, and this post). This approach […]

“When a true genius appears in the world, you may know him by this sign, that the dunces are all in confederacy against him.” Jonathan Swift abagond (“500 words a day on whatever I can rip off”), eager to give his own take on the race realism/race denialism controversy, has “summarized” some of Zek’s ignorant, […]
