Cult of Victimhood

Article excerpt

Oh dear! For a moment I thought The Spectator's leader a couple of weeks ago `Labour's lovely loony' - was serious, but then I got the joke. `Lady Gavron is so very pretty that one can hardly bear to attack her. ..' Lady Gavron? Pretty? Although I don't feel comfortable attacking the weaker sex, calling la Gavron beautiful is beyond a joke. It is an insult to beauty.

Lady Gavron had the nifty idea for Prince Charles to marry a black woman. She wants to `revise, rethink, and jettison ... Britishness', which to a poor little Greek boy like me means forgetting all about Shakespeare, the Magna Carta, Nelson, Trafalgar, you name it, she'll do away with it.

Now I was brought up to believe that one never pays a woman for her conversation, but only for her silence. Which la Gavron has not been keeping of late. If she really wanted to send an anti-racist message, she should ask her hubby to ask the Blair-Straw gang to put a few more cops on the beat around, say, Cadogan Square, where I live, and where regularly little old white ladies are mugged by big and tough young blacks. Gavron also rails about hereditary titles. Too bad, but I bet my last devalued drachma she would give almost anything for one. But back to race.

This might get me into hot water, but I've been there before. Race is more than skin deep, no ifs or buts about it. On average, Orientals are slower to mature, less randy, less fertile, and have larger brains and higher IQ scores. Blacks are at the other pole, and whites fall somewhere in the middle, although closer to the Orientals than the blacks. In sport, blacks have a genetic edge. They have narrower hips which give them a more efficient stride, and a higher centre of gravity for better balance. They have wider shoulders, less body fat, and more muscle. With more testosterone than whites and Orientals, they possess more explosive energy. Ergo their superiority in sports such as boxing and sprinting.

According to J. Philippe Rushton, professor of psychology at the University of Western Ontario, the reason why whites and East Asians have wider hips than blacks, and as a result are poorer runners, is because they give birth to larger-brained babies. It all has to do with climate, according to the good prof. Modern humans evolved in Africa about 200,000 years ago. …
