Oil And Water Must Mix!!! Or, How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Embrace The Ocean's New Diversity...

The symbolism in the gulf oil deluge is profound. Greedy corporations willing to do anything to increase their profit margins unleash a natural substance into another natural substance, causing a catastrophe of near Armageddon-like proportions.

The similarity to immigration (both legal and illegal) is obvious.

The sad irony is that everyone acknowledges that the corporations which run this world, care little for it. And that they will do or say anything to turn a profit.

Take this piece by the New York times very own black columnist,

....how is it possible for anyone with any reasonable awareness of the nonstop carnage that has accompanied the entire history of giant corporations to believe that the oil companies, which are among the most rapacious players on the planet, somehow “had their act together” with regard to worst-case scenarios.

These are not Little Lord Fauntleroys who can be trusted to abide by some fanciful honor system. These are greedy merchant armies drilling blindly at depths a mile and more beneath the seas while at the same time doing all they can to stifle the government oversight that is necessary to protect human lives and preserve the integrity of the environment.


President Obama knows that. He knows — or should know — that the biggest, most powerful companies do not have the best interests of the American people in mind when they are closing in on the kinds of profits that ancient kingdoms could only envy. BP’s profits are counted in the billions annually. They are like stacks and stacks of gold glittering beneath a brilliant sun. You don’t want to know what people will do for that kind of money.

There is nothing new to us about this. Haven’t we just seen how the giant financial firms almost destroyed the American economy? Wasn’t it just a few weeks before this hideous Deepwater Horizon disaster that a devastating mine explosion in West Virginia — at a mine run by a company with its own hideous safety record — killed 29 coal miners and ripped the heart out of yet another hard-working local community?

The idea of relying on the assurances of these corporate predators that they are looking out for the safety of their workers and the health of surrounding communities and the environment is beyond absurd.


Most people agree with the above assessment.

Yet it's these same blood-sucking corporations that are the number one pushers of immigration. It is they who push to allow into Western nations millions more legals, illegals, refugees and so on.

It is they who put the word "diversity" into the mouths of your politicians, media talking heads and, yes, even your ministers and church doctrines.

It is they who cry "racist" to anyone who objects to their global schemes of "bleeding all colors into one" in order to create the perfect dumbed down consumer/ "citizen of the world".



So, in the spirit of the times, I for one would like to thank BP for bringing a little diversity to the otherwise bland and vibrantless oceans of the world.

After all who, but an uneducated bigot, could object to the introduction of some 'black blood of the earth' into the uniform blue waters off our shores.


And let us show no quarter to those prejudiced few who would object to the flood of black crude into the Ocean's briny depths. For are not oil and water both liquidy! (that is, being capable of being liquid. Only bigots argue over technicalities after all) And are not both native to this world, sharing one common destiny!!!

I say yes!!!!

I say, let us welcome the ocean's new black comrade with open arms and in the spirit of our age of tolerance and diversity.

And to those who would try to slow down or halt the flow of oil, I say shame on you. Who are you to say where oil should reside?

To the birds and fish and various other sea dependent life forms currently fleeing from the gigantic oil slick which is quickly spreading, I say shame on you too. Yours is the "white flight" of the aquatic world.

The oil is here and its not going anywhere. Thus the waters must mix with the oil if both are to survive and share their common world.


So let us all come together to champion a world AND an ocean without borders!

A War That Only One Side Is (Thus Far) Fighting...

from Prof. MacDonald,

Kevin MacDonald: Elena Kagan’s impending confirmation on the Supreme Court has produced several comments on the decline of WASP America. Writing in the Wall Street Journal (“That Bright, Dying Star, the American WASP”), Robert Frank’s article is an expression of Jewish triumphalism and contempt for WASPs. Discussing the New York banking elite, he points to the bad old days when “the strictly homogenous crowd of Protestant blue-bloods spent their mornings comparing golf scores and vacation homes.” Among several causes for the decline of the WASPs, Frank mentions the decline of family connections and the rise of a meritocracy.

This is a favorite aspect of contemporary Jewish self-conception — the idea that Jews replaced WASPs because they are smarter and work harder. But this leads to the ultimate irony: Kagan is remarkably unqualified to be a Supreme Court Justice in terms of the usual standards: judicial experience, academic publications, or even courtroom experience. Rather, all the evidence is that Kagan owes her impending confirmation to her Jewish ethnic connections (see also here).

So we are replacing one type of ethnic networking with another. At least the WASPs’ ethnic networking had a certain legitimacy given their percentage of the population and their role in founding the country and defining its culture for much of US history.

Frank also quotes a passage from E. Digby Baltzell’s The Protestant Establishment:

A crisis has developed in modern America largely because of the White-Anglo-Saxon Protestant establishment’s unwillingness, or inability, to share and improve its upper-class traditions by continuously absorbing talented and distinguished members of minority groups into its privileged ranks.

Perhaps. But that wouldn’t explain the eclipse of the WASPs, only that they resisted the inroads of others — futilely, as it turns out. Mr. Frank, of course, finds the passage useful because he sees himself as a member of a certain upwardly mobile minority group that he feels was not greeted warmly enough by the WASPs.

Baltzell’s comment is quite consistent with my view that that the WASPs did not voluntarily cede control but were pushed out by a rising Jewish group whose base of influence was the academic world, finance, the legal profession, personal wealth, and the media (where anti-WASP movies became a staple at least by the 1960s; see also here).

Freedom Don't Float That Way....

Israel Navy troops opened fire on pro-Palestinian activists aboard a six-ship aid flotilla sailing for the Gaza Strip, killing at least 10 and wounding several others after the convoy ignored orders to turn back, Turkey's NTV reported early Monday.

...

The Israeli naval vessels reportedly made contact earlier with the six-ship flotilla, which is carrying 10,000 tons of humanitarian aid and supplies to Gaza.

Inter-generational Inequality...

The greatest long term obstacle to racial equality is history.

I mean, no matter if the "progressives" are successful in their bid to ethnically cleanse planet earth of Whites (through anti-White legislation, miscegenation and so on) in the present, the existence of White societies in the past will continue to shine a very unwelcomed light upon non-White societies.

Because it is a matter of fact that the more "diverse" an area or nation-state becomes, the lower its standard of living.


A majority colored America simply will never be able to achieve the progress, peace, freedom and prosperity of pre-1965 America.

How do I know this.

Well for one thing we already have such an America. It's called South America. And it is everything the social engineers tell us we should aspire towards and is our (thanks to intentionally designed policies) inevitable future.

For another thing the average national IQ of Mexico is around 88. The average IQ of blacks in America is 85.

The average IQ of Whites is 100.

Throw in various other groups who are pouring into North America and your looking at a future where the average person will have an IQ of around 90, maybe.


And as we can see RIGHT NOW is places where Whites are a minority, the future will consist of a mass of low IQ brown people ankle deep in their own waste and wallowing in perpetual crime, poverty and disease.


And above all of that will stand the image of the world before. White, clean, prosperous and beautiful, and standing in unmovable defiance for all time to the absurd lie of equality.




...

Memorial Day And The 4th Of July; Racist Holidays!!!...

As the Confederate Flag and, increasingly, the Yankee Flag are deemed to be racist symbols representing the oppression of noble colored hordes at the hands of the White-Devil, it is inevitable that holidays representing such bigotry and tyranny are scheduled to be shamed into the dustbin of history as well.

And of course no days better represent such blind prejudice and ignorance as Memorial Day and the 4th of July. Both dedicated to evil White people's theft of other peoples lands and oppression of other people's culture.

And so on and so forth...............




Think the above sounds to fantastic to happen?


Just wait a few more years.


Those who champion the "civil rights" movement are probably already moving in that direction right now.

Polls...

Three-quarters of Americans want to see the number of illegal immigrants decreased and a substantial majority put more priority on stopping illegal immigration than they do in finding a path for immigrants to become legal residents, according to a CNN/Opinion Research poll conducted May 21-23.

The 76 percent who say they want the population of illegals decreased is the highest figure in CNN polls dating back to June 2006 when those holding this view numbered 67 percent.

Sixty percent want the emphasis of the government to be on stopping illegals from entering the country and deporting those who are here compared to 38 percent who want to allow them to become legal residents.

And in other polls 99.99999% of politicians revealed that they don't give a rat's ass what the American people want.

Island Of The Dead...

After 18 months, 40 focus groups and a secret operation worthy of MI5, London 2012 on Wednesday finally revealed the mascots that will help define the capital’s Olympic experience, and just as importantly help pay for it.


The one-eyed figures, called Wenlock and Mandeville, were unveiled at an east London school on Wednesday with organisers hoping they will inspire a generation of children and persuade their parents to contribute the £15 million the mascots are slated to raise in merchandising revenue.

The English people, which is to say the English race, have an unparalleled history rich in a cultural tapestry that spans thousands of years.
Theirs is the land of King Arthur and William Shakespeare; Nelson and Robin Hood. And a plethora of other such iconic figures, real and fictional.

Yet their mascots are intentionally devoid of all Englishness in demonstration of the elite's contempt for history and race. Which is to say, blood and soil.....family and nation.



All those who favor a future without discrimination and prejudice, take a good look at those freakish mascots. They are what "diversity" looks like.
A cultureless society redefined by secret government focus groups the likes of which the Soviets could hardly imagine in all of their bland and lifeless propaganda.


They say death is the great equalizer.

It looks like a land of living dead is the social engineers solution to inequality.

Liberalism: Culture Of Death....

Åse Brandvold, Islam in Europe, May 9, 2010

“Why is it racism is we call them ‘black’ and not racism if they call us ‘white’”?

“I never called anybody ‘Nigger’ or ‘Black’ or anything like that. On the other hand, those of us who were White were talked about derogatorily. It was negative to be White, Christianity and Norwegian culture was negative and there were many curses,” says Mari Morken (16) and rattles them off “Whitey, potato and white cheese”

Three years ago she couldn’t take it any more. She moved from a school in Groruddalen to a school on the west side. Every morning she takes the subway to the other side of the city to escape the curses and the bad class-environment. Where she goes now, it’s good to have good grades, and she doesn’t stand out because she’s light. Before she made dark stripes in her medium-blond hair. Now she dyes her hair a bit lighter. She’s in the process of ‘taking back’ her Norwegianity, and is happy to be blond without being branded ‘whore’ and cheap’.

“Ah, girl, blond whore!”

‘Josephine’ was met with these words on the first school day at a high-school in an immigrant-dominated suburb south of Stockholm. Josphine was quite baffled, since aside from her hair color there was nothing about her appearance that would indicate she was promiscuous. She didn’t use makeup and had completely neutral clothing. It was exclusively her hair-color that branded her a ‘whore’.

‘Josephine’ is one of the informants for researchers Maria Bäckman, who did an ethnographic field study in a suburb south of Stockholm, where ethnic Swedes make up about 20% of the population. They’re therefore a minority. Klassekampen met Bäckman this week when she visited the University in Oslo and the Culcom research program (cultural complexity in the new Norway). She’s the first in Sweden who researched ethnic Swedes as a minority. A similar study was not done in Norway.

“In the suburbs the invisible Swedishness become visible. Ethnic Swedes experience being defined and labeled by their culture and religion, similarly with minorities of a different background,” Bäckman told Klassekampen.

In her study she focused on ethnic Swedish girls. They experience being linked to the notion of free, Swedish sexuality, which in the densely immigrant suburbs is not necessarily linked with something positive. The strategy for the suburb girls was therefore to play down their Swedish identity.

“Several dyed their hair. Not necessarily because they wanted to look like immigrants, but because they didn’t want to look so Swedish,” says Bäckman.

“Yes, it’s typical, Exactly like that.” Mari Morken nodded vigorously to us from the other side of the cafe table when we repeated some of what Maria Bäckman has found out. “I was called a whore so many times, I became immune.”

We meet her and her mother, Kristin Pedersen, for a talk about why Mari changed schools. They tell of systematic bullying and harassment since Mari reached puberty when she was 10-11, till she transferred school when she was 13.

Pedersen is still upset at the school’s lack of handling of the case.

“They laid the responsibility for the situation on Mari. She just had to cope, because she was strong in resources, white middle-class. But Mari also has a right to a good and safe environment,” says Pedersen, who tried to address the harassment repeatedly without anything being done. She was told that the bullies had a very difficult time at home.

Mari says that now, after three years, she’s distanced herself enough to come forward with it. “I want to show that I won’t let it break me.”

Although school was a nightmare, they like their home area, and they have a good relationship with their Pakistani neighbors. Mari remembers her childhood as safe and nice. She also enjoyed school during the first years. In first grade a third of the students were of non-Norwegian background. When she left, barely a third of the class were ethnic Norwegian.

“At first all the Norwegian girls were active in class, but in the end we Norwegian girls sat in the back of the classroom and were silent as a mouse while the others made a racket,” says Mari.

Kristin Pedersen thinks it happens when the group of immigrant background becomes too big and dominating. Something which isn’t positive. The elementary school Mari started at, has just 5% ethnic Norwegians. Mari knows three girls who started there but then moved to a school with a smaller proportion of immigrants. All the girls are naturally blond, but had dyed their hair dark.

Althoguh Mari got negative attention from the boys, it was a girls’ gang made up of an ethnic Norwegian and three girls of Pakistani background who devastated her.

“the girls too on the boys’ role in a way. They were into fighting and conflicts,” says Mari, who was also physically attacked.

Once, the situation escalated so much that the teacher chose to calm the situation by asking Mari to go home. After school eight of the students trooped home with her.

For a long time Mari didn’t dare go to the local center. She knew that the girls had told older boys in the A and B gangs [ed: Pakistani gangs] that she had said nasty things about their skin color and religion.

“That’s what provokes them the most,” says Mari.

Kristin Pedersen says that boys who parents are assumed to be linked to the gangs, had for a long time acted threateningly towards Mari’s father.

But the straw that broke the camel’s back for Mari was that when she was in 7th grade, she got the responsibility to teach the others in class choreography for a school play. Mari was mainly active in dance and the school therefore thought she could take the job. Of course everything went wrong when she was supposed to teach the bullies.

At that point, Pedersen and her husband got tired of the lack of response form the school and complained about it to the county, which agreed with them on several points. A few days after they lodged a complaint, the principal was put on early retirement.

Klassekampen has been in contact with the retired headmaster. She says it’s a positive thing that we’re dealing with the issues regarding how we live together, but thinks maybe we should take with somebody else. For reasons of confidentiality, she didn’t want to go into the specific harassment case. She didn’t want to comment on the decision of the county either.

“Before I always went in long pants and t-shirts, regardless of how warm it was,” says Mari.

She changed after transferring schools. She replaced the hooded sweater with tight clothes and makeup. This summer she will go with a singlet, which she didn’t dare do before. She was ashamed if her bra strap was showing. But now she’s decided not to care about the stares.

Maria Bäckman’s field work outside Stockholm shows the same trend. Girls dress neutrally and tone down their femininity, in order to avoid stares and attention. Another thing she found out was that several went with a cross. Not necessarily because they were so Christian but because it was embarrassing not to have a religious identity.

Mari nods vigorously again.

“I know people who go with a cross in order to be accepted. It’s a little like going with brand clothes. There are just some codes you need to follow.”

“Now I’ve been confirmed secularly, but I think it would be difficult to be accepted for that, if I had continued to go to a school in Groruddalen,” she said.

Though Mari doesn’t see herself as Christian, she sees Christianity as ‘her religion’.

“We learned more about the others’ religion than about our own.”

“We thought it was more exciting with other religions, but our religion never got the same positive attention,” she says.

Upbringing, education and living conditions are the key words for the government’s effort in Groruddalen, which will continue till 2016. Mother and daughter have noticed that there’s new recreational activities for the youth, but Mari has stayed away, both because she’s uncomfortable in the community, and because she feels foreign in those activities.

“They reach group who don’t have any activities today. It doesn’t unify. Many of the ethnic Norwegian don’t go to this. It actually reinforces the differences,” says Mari.

Kristin Pedersen thinks the problem is the attitudes of the responsible politicians and the professions who work with integration.

“They need to understand that were we live, we could all feel like a minority. Therefore it’s also necessary to have a minority perspective for the ethnic Norwegian parts of the population,” she says.

When it comes to the teachers and school administration in Groruddalen, Pedersen thinks that they should be trained in creating a positive environment.

“They are so afraid of being called racists. They fear getting involved with the difficult things, because they’re afraid it will be used against them,” she says.

Proves The Rule...

In another multiCULTural paradise, Jamaica....




Hospital sources said that the dead and injured were mainly civilians caught up in the violence as troops fanned out across the city hunting an alleged drug kingpin.

Police have officially put the death toll at 27, but Mr Golding warned the figures would rise, and police said there had also been "several murders" in Greater Kingston area. Hospital sources said they had received "about 50" dead bodies and witnesses told of a truck with another 12 corpses on board.

Hmmm...

Bluebell Park, on the city's south side, may have lost its basketball court forever because of a violent incident over the weekend involving players and residents whose property border the park, according to Lansing officials.

And then Saturday, a Sunrose Avenue couple were assaulted in their backyard, inciting conversations over whether basketball courts in city parks are magnets for trouble.Murdock Jemerson, the city's parks and recreation director, said news that 57-year-old Larry Ruble was beaten by several players Saturday evening was the clincher.

And why is that?

WAUKESHA - There are no more basketball hoops at Roberta Park in Waukesha, and some people are wondering if that was a racist move.

The hoops were pulled from the asphalt last month, much to the disappointment of several children in the area. But moms like Angelique Byrne are glad the hoops are gone, and she hopes the park will be more "kid friendly" now. "I know a lot of people in the neighborhood were a bit intimidated by the teenagers just due to the foul language and the large number of kids that were here," said Byrne.

But one community worker says it wasn't just the age of the kids, but their race. "Most of the kids were black, yes," said DJ Webb from nearby New Beginnings Church.

Webb worries the hoops disappeared in the hopes black people in the park would too. "I hope it would not be racial but from some of the things that we've seen that kind of appears to be the issue, but I know there are a lot of great people out here in Waukesha so I would hope that would not be the case."

-source



The story....

Maureen Ruble said she and her husband were attacked after he asked the men to stop using foul language. She estimated the men were in their 20s. They were not from the neighborhood, she said.

The backyard of the couple's home on Sunrose Avenue, just south of Jolly Road, is separated from Bluebell Park by a fence. A man standing near the fence was shouting obscenities to the others on the basketball court, Ruble said.

"My husband just went to the fence and asked him very respectfully, 'This is a family neighborhood here, can you cut the language?' " she said. "He didn't even get it out of his mouth, and this guy jumped the fence."

Then, she said, about five others from the basketball court jumped the fence into their backyard, where moments before the couple had been grilling chicken. Ruble said she was pushed to the ground.

As others on the basketball court cheered them on, the men beat and kicked her husband until he was nearly unconscious, she said.

Basically six blacks attack an older White man because he asked them to act like human beings.


The problem, rather obviously, is not the presence of basketball courts but the presence of blacks.

It seems to be a recurrent theme whether its at parks, parking lots or the street nearest you.


The bigger problem though is that Whites continue to publicly pretend its something other than what it is.

In this case the White fellow expected the blacks to act like White men would. He learned otherwise.




It's an unsustainable solution to a problem that is only growing worse by the moment.

Blackland...

There’s an ugly secret of global poverty, one rarely acknowledged by aid groups or U.N. reports. It’s a blunt truth that is politically incorrect, heartbreaking, frustrating and ubiquitous:

It’s that if the poorest families spent as much money educating their children as they do on wine, cigarettes and prostitutes, their children’s prospects would be transformed. Much suffering is caused not only by low incomes, but also by shortsighted private spending decisions by heads of households.

...

We asked to see Jovali’s parents. The dad, Georges Obamza, who weaves straw stools that he sells for $1 each, is unmistakably very poor. He said that the family is eight months behind on its $6-a-month rent and is in danger of being evicted, with nowhere to go.

The Obamzas have no mosquito net, even though they have already lost two of their eight children to malaria. They say they just can’t afford the $6 cost of a net. Nor can they afford the $2.50-a-month tuition for each of their three school-age kids.

“It’s hard to get the money to send the kids to school,” Mr. Obamza explained, a bit embarrassed.

But Mr. Obamza and his wife, Valerie, do have cellphones and say they spend a combined $10 a month on call time.

In addition, Mr. Obamza goes drinking several times a week at a village bar, spending about $1 an evening on moonshine. By his calculation, that adds up to about $12 a month — almost as much as the family rent and school fees combined.

I asked Mr. Obamza why he prioritizes alcohol over educating his kids. He looked pained.

Other villagers said that Mr. Obamza drinks less than the average man in the village (women drink far less). Many other men drink every evening, they said, and also spend money on cigarettes.

In other words blacks are the same everywhere. Nothing new there.

Whether it's Detroit, New Orleans, Haiti or on the African continent itself.

And it has always been such.



No. It will not do. Even as we see African states refusing to take action to restore something resembling civilisation in Zimbabwe, the begging bowl for Ethiopia is being passed around to us, yet again. It is nearly 25 years since Ethiopia's (and Bob Geldof's) famous Feed The World campaign, and in that time Ethiopia's population has grown from 33.5 million to 78 million today.

...

But, please, please, you self-righteously wrathful, spare me mention of our own Famine, with this or that lazy analogy. There is no comparison. Within 20 years of the Famine, the Irish population was down by 30pc. Over the equivalent period, thanks to western food, the Mercedes 10-wheel truck and the Lockheed Hercules, Ethiopia's has more than doubled.

Alas, that wretched country is not alone in its madness. Somewhere, over the rainbow, lies Somalia, another fine land of violent, Kalashnikov-toting, khat-chewing, girl-circumcising, permanently tumescent layabouts.

Indeed, we now have almost an entire continent of sexually

hyperactive indigents, with tens of millions of people who only survive because of help from the outside world.

This dependency has not stimulated political prudence or commonsense. Indeed, voodoo idiocy seems to be in the ascendant, with the next president of South Africa being a firm believer in the efficacy of a little tap water on the post-coital penis as a sure preventative against infection. Needless to say, poverty, hunger and societal meltdown have not prevented idiotic wars involving Tigre, Uganda, Congo, Sudan, Somalia, Eritrea etcetera.

Broad brush-strokes, to be sure. But broad brush-strokes are often the way that history paints its gaudier, if more decisive, chapters. Japan, China, Russia, Korea, Poland, Germany, Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia in the 20th century have endured worse broad brush-strokes than almost any part of Africa.

They are now -- one way or another -- virtually all giving aid to or investing in Africa, whereas Africa, with its vast savannahs and its lush pastures, is giving almost nothing to anyone, apart from AIDS.

Meanwhile, Africa's peoples are outstripping their resources, and causing catastrophic ecological degradation. By 2050, the population of Ethiopia will be 177 million: The equivalent of France, Germany and Benelux today, but located on the parched and increasingly protein-free wastelands of the Great Rift Valley.

So, how much sense does it make for us actively to increase the adult population of what is already a vastly over-populated, environmentally devastated and economically dependent country?

How much morality is there in saving an Ethiopian child from starvation today, for it to survive to a life of brutal circumcision, poverty, hunger, violence and sexual abuse, resulting in another half-dozen such wide-eyed children, with comparably jolly little lives ahead of them? Of course, it might make you feel better, which is a prime reason for so much charity. But that is not good enough.

Re-Up (Race Is Only Skin Deep....Till You Need A Kidney!)...

On the he eighth biennial American Renaissance Conference, held in February 2008,

The first speaker on Saturday morning was Philippe Rushton, the eminent psychometrician from the University of Western Ontario, who spoke about the heritability of racial differences in IQ. He first noted that the measured IQs of black Africans, which have consistently been found to be about 70, do not mean they are retarded. Instead, it is best to consider Africans as having the intelligence of normal 11-year-olds.

Prof. Rushton warned that despite optimistic predictions, India will not grow to become an economic superpower as he says China will. Although there are many smart Indians, their average IQ is 85, meaning that India will be outdistanced by China, where the average IQ is something over 100.

Prof. Rushton noted that it is common to argue that the meager, unpleasant surroundings in which low-IQ people live drag down their intelligence, and that this, rather than genes, causes racial differences. On the other hand, one would expect low-IQ people to create meager environments for themselves, and there is a mass of evidence to suggest that the causation is far more IQ-to-environment than environment-to-IQ.
Transracial adoption studies, for example, show that children reared by people of different races end up with IQs closer to the average for their own race than to that of their adoptive parents.

Likewise, non-whites have now lived for many generations in the United States and Europe, and their IQ scores are only slightly improved by better surroundings. Prof. Rushton cited the scores of second-generation North Africans living in Holland, whose average IQ of 89 is only a few points higher than the average in North Africa. “Genes,” explained Prof. Rushton, “keep culture on a leash.”

By now there are many mixed-race populations whose IQs have been carefully tested, and results are consistent with genetic explanations: Their average IQs tend to be mid-way between those of the parent populations. Finally, there is a clear correlation between brain size and IQ. Australian Aborigines, the population with the lowest recorded average IQ of 60, have the smallest brains, and North Asians have the largest brains. Findings such as this are very difficult to explain in terms of the impoverishing effect of environment.

Prof. Rushton noted that although the mainstream media do not yet report studies of this kind, they are published in top-notch journals and are generally accepted by scholars in the field. It will be only a matter of time before they become widely known.

The next speaker, (Dr.) Eugene Valberg, called upon many years of experience in South Africa to describe how Africans think. He said his interest in the subject was piqued by a conversation with Africans about gradation. How, he wanted to know, would a Zulu speaker describe a coconut as half-way up a tree? That can’t be expressed, was the answer; the coconut is “up” the tree or not, and its relative location cannot be expressed. Dr. Valberg has since found that Africans often have a hard time understanding gradation, and tend to think in terms of one extreme or the other.

He noted that African languages do not need dictionaries. Because they have no written literature, everyone who speaks them knows every word in the language. The resulting poverty of vocabulary reflects a poverty of expression and thought.

Today, non-native concepts have found their way into African languages, but it is important to distinguish between indigenous words and those that have been borrowed from Europeans. For example, there are now imported words in the Zulu language for “promise” or “obligation,” but Africans have a hard time understanding them.

Perhaps most characteristic of African thinking is an absence of abstraction. Africans rarely get beyond the concrete, present-oriented, visible, and tangible. Because the future is not tangible, it is difficult for Africans to think about it realistically. A man who is healthy may not understand the purpose of medical insurance. His mind may run no further than “I’m not sick now.” Likewise, the need to maintain machinery is often lost on Africans. If the motor is running fine now, why change the oil? Because Africans often cannot imagine things that do not exist, they cannot work seriously towards future goals.

Dr. Valberg argued that without abstract thinking it is hard to imagine the feelings of others. At the worst extreme, Africans can torture each other with astonishing callousness, and at the everyday level, they are often indifferent to or even unaware of their own rudeness or inconsiderateness. To be considerate requires an ability to imagine the feelings of others.

South Africa is often called the rape capital of the world, but Dr. Valberg believes Africans do not fully grasp the concept of rape. They have been told that “rape” is a bad thing, yet most African men do not think it wrong to force a woman to have sex. This unthinking acceptance of the actions that constitute rape makes it difficult to prosecute rapists. Dr. Valberg also said that for most Africans, romantic love does not exist, and sex is the only thing that draws men and women together.

Lack of abstract thinking can be an advantage. Africans are almost never introspective or self-conscious. They are only rarely neurotic, and Dr. Valberg suspects that impotence is essentially unheard of among them.

Dr. Valberg noted that although American blacks have higher IQs and operate at a higher level than African blacks, they exhibit many of the same tendencies.


Fred Reed, the man behind the popular Internet site “Fred on Everything,” has lived in Mexico for many years and spoke on “Mexico From the Inside.”

There are distinctly Third-World qualities about Mexico, and immigrants are bringing them to America. There is widespread disregard for law and regulations. Anyone who can, cheats the authorities, and Mexicans ignore traffic regulations—you take your life in your hands on the roads. Mexicans also have contempt for schooling, which translates into high dropout rates among emigrants to the US.

Some of Mr. Reed’s most interesting observations had to do with the mañana attitude, which is a reality and not a caricature. Many Mexicans really do live in the present, and have little sense of urgency about anything. Many lack ambition, and seem not to care about their communities.

AR editor Jared Taylor next spoke about why it is so difficult to persuade white people to give up their illusions about race. He said that a realistic understanding of race includes three basic concepts: That race is a real, biological category; that racial differences go beyond gross morphology; and that racial loyalty is natural and healthy. Current orthodoxy denies all three.

Mr. Taylor argued that the view that race is some kind of sociological illusion will be the first building block of “race fantasy” to crumble. Everyone instinctively understands the reality of race, and no one who needs a kidney will ever say, “Don’t bother with tissue matching; we are all brothers under the skin.”

Re-Up (What Do You See?)...

The Florida Department of Corrections reports that as of Feb. 28, 2010, there are, at the Florida State Prison in Starke, 393 men on death row, having been found guilty of first-degree murder.

At Lowell, Florida's correctional institutional annex, there is one female who is also sentenced to death.

But at Miami's SeaWorld, the killer of three human beings, a killer whale named Tilikum, will continue to be the star of the show.

First-degree murder is generally defined as: premeditated killing with malice aforethought.

Is it realistic to presume that killer whales are incapable of any thought?

And when Tilikum (whom the New York Times identified as "Tilly, for short") grabbed trainer Dawn Brancheau, age 40, "by the hair while she stood in shallow water, and dragged her into a deep pool," to her death, is it realistic to presume that "Tilly" did this killing with no thought in advance?

On Feb. 26, the New York Times published the following headline:

"Intentions of Whale in Killing are Debated."

There is no detailed explanation as to why in the name of common sense was Mrs. Brancheau standing "in shallow water" along with this killer who "dragged her into a deep pool," where he killed her.

-source


The whale's victim was, not surprisingly, a White person.

Why not surprisingly?

Because only White people spend time, money and blood (sometimes their own often times others') in causes proclaiming dangerous creatures to simply be misunderstood.

Whether it's Killer Whales, Cobras, Stingrays, Lions, Grizzly Bears, Haitians, Muslims, African-Americans etc... there are countless White people living and dying on the premise that "they're just misunderstood."


Is it something in the water?

The air?


What is it that makes Western people today so suicidal in their outlooks and actions?


It couldn't possibly be that media, with its images of 'Gentle Ben', 'Free Willy' and the "Gentle Back Giant" types of 'The Green Mile', has so thoroughly twisted and manipulated reality that people now mistrust what their own eyes see and their own experiences reveal, could it?


From the New York Times,

The second hard truth is that micro-aid is vital but insufficient. Given the failures of macrodevelopment, aid organizations often focus on microprojects. More than 10,000 organizations perform missions of this sort in Haiti. By some estimates, Haiti has more nongovernmental organizations per capita than any other place on earth. They are doing the Lord’s work, especially these days, but even a blizzard of these efforts does not seem to add up to comprehensive change.

Probably one of the most emailed-around articles on Election Day was this:

“In western Kenya, relatives, friends and a bull ready for slaughter were massed around the homestead of Barack Obama's late father, awaiting a hoped-for victory for their new favourite son…Leading in US opinion polls over Republican rival John McCain, Obama received some added support in Kenya with special prayer sessions and even a victory prediction from a local witch doctor. [Obama's Kenyan relatives ready bull for slaughter, by Odhiambo Akombo, AFP, November 4, 2008]

If President Obama succeeds in arranging more immigration from Africa, Americans can expect a wide assortment of superstitious behavior that we would find objectionable, to say the least.

In Tanzania, at least 30 albinos have been murdered in the last year because of witchcraft. Their body parts are much desired for sorcery rituals and bring a high price. There is a cross-border trade with Burundi where albinos, including children, are chased down, killed and dismembered. One man was pursued by four armed men and had to hide in the forest for two days.

The purchasers may place a body part near a gold mine to bring the metal to the surface or on a hook as fish bait.

"The killers sell body parts such as arms, legs, hair, skin and genitals, according to police and albino groups.

“Those involved in witchcraft, especially in mining and fishing industries, believe these will enrich them, President Kikwete said last month, calling it a 'stupid belief.'

Local media have reported several incidents of victims left to bleed to death.

'They are cutting us up like chickens,' Msembo said, while pointing to a picture on a wall in her cramped office of a limbless body with the skin on its face peeled off from an incident in 2007." [African albinos killed for body parts, By George Obulutsa, Reuters, November 3, 2008]

As a result, the 200,000 Tanzanian albinos are terrorized and angry that their corpses have become a commodity. In one recent case, a 10-year-old girl was killed and mutilated by a gang to sell the parts.

In Angola and Congo, children are accused surprisingly often of being witches, and often expelled from their families. One investigation counted 432 Angolan street children in a single town who had been accused of witchcraft and turned out.

it was reported in September that accusations of sorcery set off a soccer riot in eastern Congo causing the deaths of 13 people, most of whom were children and teens. [Witchcraft rumor sparks riot at Congo soccer game, AP, September 15, 2008] The blow-up began when one player was suspected of throwing something into the net of the opposing team, which was thought to be "witchcraft." The result was violence and death.

Worse, her case was only the tip of the iceberg.

"An official inquiry into the abuse of African children branded as witches is expected to conclude that there have been at least 50 such cases over five years in London alone.

The investigation is expected to find that cases of sorcery-related abuse are now spreading outside the capital to areas such as Liverpool, Newcastle and parts of Yorkshire—although they remain confined to only a minority of Africans in Britain.

The abuse of the children has ranged from shouting to beating, starving, slashing with knives and razors and, in at least one case, murder." ["Witch child" abuse spreads in Britain, By Jack Grimston Sunday Times, June 25, 2006]

Another shocking murder was "Adam," an unidentified child whose headless torso was found in the Thames in September 2001. The African boy was believed to be between four and six years old and had swallowed a potion containing bone fragments before he died. Investigators concluded that the boy was killed in a ritual murder as a part of African witchcraft. No-one was ever arrested.

After more investigation of missing children in Britain, authorities determined that some 300 black boys aged 4-7 were unaccounted for, leading to fears of widespread child sacrifice. But child protective agencies do not track the many foreign children sent to live in Britain under the care of persons who are not the parents. So the extent of abuse is not really known.

More complicating is the presence of ostensibly Christian churches, populated with African immigrants, which commonly practice exorcisms. ['Exorcisms are part of our culture', By Cindi John BBC News, June 3, 2005]In particular, Congolese and Angolan preachers accept the existence of evil spirits, curses and demonic possession, and weave that belief into their ministries. In some cases, pastors have crossed the line into child abuse in their activities to drive out evil spirits. Social turmoil has been an unfortunate byproduct, with ethnic groups accusing police of racism.

Crime Rates

  • Blacks are seven times more likely than people of other races to commit murder, and eight times more likely to commit robbery.
  • When blacks commit crimes of violence, they are nearly three times more likely than non-blacks to use a gun, and more than twice as likely to use a knife.
  • Hispanics commit violent crimes at roughly three times the white rate, and Asians commit violent crimes at about one quarter the white rate.
  • The single best indicator of violent crime levels in an area is the percentage of the population that is black and Hispanic.

Interracial Crime

  • Of the nearly 770,000 violent interracial crimes committed every year involving blacks and whites, blacks commit 85 percent and whites commit 15 percent.
  • Blacks commit more violent crime against whites than against blacks. Forty-five percent of their victims are white, 43 percent are black, and 10 percent are Hispanic. When whites commit violent crime, only three percent of their victims are black.
  • Blacks are an estimated 39 times more likely to commit a violent crime against a white than vice versa, and 136 times more likely to commit robbery.
  • Blacks are 2.25 times more likely to commit officially-designated hate crimes against whites than vice versa.

Gangs

  • Only 10 percent of youth gang members are white.
  • Hispanics are 19 times more likely than whites to be members of youth gangs. Blacks are 15 times more likely, and Asians are nine times more likely.

Incarceration

  • Between 1980 and 2003 the US incarceration rate more than tripled, from 139 to 482 per 100,000, and the number of prisoners increased from 320,000 to 1.39 million.
  • Blacks are seven times more likely to be in prison than whites. Hispanics are three times more likely.

The table does not gives statistics for Hispanic victims and offenders. But the bottom line on interracial white/black and black/white rape is clear:

In the United States in 2005, 37,460 white females were sexually assaulted or raped by a black man, while between zero and ten black females were sexually assaulted or raped by a white man.

What this means is that every day in the United States, over one hundred white women are raped or sexually assaulted by a black man.

A defiant Robert Mugabe has sailed unchallenged through the first test

Western leaders from France, the United States and Canada joined
Britain in ratcheting up pressure on the organisation to reject Mr Mugabe’s
authority.


Freshly sworn in after a single candidate election, he received a
leader’s welcome when he strode into the African Union summit in Sharm el-Sheikh
yesterday and emerged unfazed, his authority intact.
He dined at a lavish
luncheon given by his Egyptian hosts, hugged heads of state and other diplomats
in the corridors and stayed at the Peninsula Hotel, one of the most luxurious in
this Red Sea town. “Mr Mugabe is staying there as a courtesy by the Egyptian
Government,” a hotel spokesman said. Delegates from the opposition Movement for
Democratic Change (MDC) lodged at the Sheraton, while their leader, Morgan
Tsvangirai, remained in Zimbabwe.
The African Union’s public response to Mr
Mugabe’s seizure of power was seen as a key measure of the organisation’s
commitment to democracy after Zimbabwe’s violent run-off elections.

Darfur, however, is only one of a pox of conflicts that, together with HIV/AIDS,
are depopulating parts of Africa and robbing it of potential wealth from
mineral, oil and gas deposits. Wars have also raged in Chad, Congo, Liberia,
Sierra Leone and Somalia. Were it not for the Iraq war, Washington may have
acted to stop what the Bush administration admits is genocide in Darfur, or
taken steps to prevent the chaos sweeping Somalia after a group affiliated with
al-Qaeda took over the country and left Ethiopia no choice but to invade in
hopes of preventing a more disastrous war. Unfortunately, even designating a
small presence of U.S. Special Forces to lead a U.N.-approved peacekeeping force
in Darfur appears beyond the capability of the badly stretched American

Formerly White ruled South Africa, now in the hands of blacks,
South Africans today are deeply demoralised people. The lights are going out
in homes, mines, factories and shopping malls as the national power authority,
Eskom - suffering from mismanagement, lack of foresight, a failure to maintain
power stations and a flight of skilled engineers to other countries - implements
rolling power cuts that plunge towns and cities into daily chaos.Major
industrial projects are on hold. The only healthy enterprise now worth being
involved in is the sale of small diesel generators to powerless households but
even this business has run out of supplies and spare parts from China.Newly
elected African National Congress (ANC) leader Jacob Zuma, the state
president-in-waiting, narrowly escaped being jailed for raping an HIV-positive
woman last year, and faces trial later this year for soliciting and accepting
bribes in connection with South Africa's shady multi-billion-pound arms deal
with British, German and French weapons manufacturers.Commenting on the massive
power cuts, Trevor Gaunt, professor of electrical engineering at the University
of Cape Town, who warned the government eight years ago of the impending crisis,
said: "The damage is huge, and now South Africa looks just like the rest of
Africa. Maybe it will take 20 years to recover."Last week, for example,
18-year-old Razelle Botha, who passed all her A-levels with marks of more than
90% and was about to train as a doctor, returned home with her father, Professor
Willem Botha, founder of the geophysics department at the University of
Pretoria, from buying pizzas for the family. Inside the house, armed gunmen
confronted them. They shot Professor Botha in the leg and pumped bullets into
Razelle.One severed her spine. Now she is fighting for her life and will never
walk again, and may never become a doctor. The gunmen stole a laptop computer
and a camera.Feeding the perfect storm are the two centres of ANC power in the
country at the moment. On the one hand, there is the ANC in parliament, led by
President Mbeki, who last Friday gave a state-of-the-nation address and
apologised to the country for the power crisis.Mbeki made only the briefest of
mentions of the national Aids crisis, with more than six million people
HIV-positive. He did not address the Scorpions crisis. The collapsing public
hospital system, under his eccentric health minister Manto Tshabalala-Msimang,
an alcoholic who recently jumped the public queue for a liver transplant,
received no attention. And the name Jacob Zuma did not pass his lips.Zuma, a

did that. After the whites left, the Congolese did not work. We did not know how
to. For the past 50 years, we've just declined." He pauses. "They took this

Formerly White ruled New Orleans, now ruled by blacks,
As District Attorney Eddie Jordan descended last week to his moment of
greatest political vulnerability, a group of prominent business leaders met with
New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin to craft an exit strategy for the beleaguered
prosecutor -- one that chiefly involved giving him a soft landing in a private
sector job, sources familiar with the talk said Tuesday.The unprecedented move
ends a tenure mired in criticism over a widely perceived failure to successfully
prosecute violent criminals, chronic turnover in his office, and most recently
the bizarre disclosure that a robbery suspect fled to Jordan's Algiers house
only to then become a suspect in the shooting of a New Orleans police
officer.Now, Jordan's undoing appears rooted in one of his first official acts:
Systematically firing white employees and replacing them with black applicants
two weeks after taking office. While it's hardly uncommon for politicians to
clean house and install loyalists, a federal jury of eight white and two black
jurors unanimously found that Jordan, who is black, fired 43 employees -- all
white but for one Hispanic -- because of their race.Of 56 total dismissals, 53
of the employees were white. Within six months of his administration, Jordan had
hired 68 people, 92 percent of them African-American. Critics further have
suggested that the firings had the effect of stripping the office of
institutional knowledge and experienced talent, throwing its daily management
into confusion and setting off a trend of poor working conditions and chronic
turnover.This criticism climaxed this summer, when his office dismissed charges
against suspects in the 2006 murders of musician and teacher Dinerral Shavers
and the Central City massacre that left five teenagers dead in the street. Both
cases fell apart, with Jordan claiming uncooperative witnesses.Earlier this
year, Jordan was further lambasted for his office's repeated release of
suspects, even occasionally ones arrested for violent crimes, because his
prosecutors could not make a decision about whether to press charges under the
state mandated deadline. These releases are called "701s," shorthand for Article
701 of the Louisiana Code of Criminal Procedure, which states that no one can be
held longer than 60 days on a felony arrest without an indictment.In the latest
and strangest flare-up, police recently questioned Jordan after robbery suspect
Elton Phillips, 20, allegedly fled to his home after holding up a man outside a
nearby Algiers Shell station.-

On Race...

J. Philippe Rushton, amren.com, November 4, 1996

In 1996 Professor Phillippe Rushton of the University of Western Ontario released the following statement on race in response to attempts to discredit the very concept of race and to argue that race “has no validity as a biological concept when applied to man.” We are pleased once again to make a copy of this important statement available to our readers.
Discussion of “race” shows little sign of diminishing, despite efforts to deconstruct the concept. Deconstructing the concept of race not only conflicts with people’s tendency to classify and build family histories according to common descent but also ignores the work of biologists studying non-human species. Ever since 1758, when the Swedish naturalist Carolus Linnaeus created the classification system still used in biology today, most zoologists have recognized at least the four human subdivisions Linnaeus delineated: Asians, American Indians, Europeans, and Africans. (Technically, some would group the first two Linnaean subdivisions together, thus yielding three major races, often termed, mongoloids, caucasoids, and negroids.) Such high-level classifications do not rule out making finer, hierarchical subdivisions within these major groups.

A race is what zoologists term a variety or subdivision of a species. Each race (or variety) is characterized by a more or less distinct combination of inherited morphological, behavioral, physiological traits. In flowers, insects, and non-human mammals, zoologists consistently and routinely study the process of racial differentiation. Formation of a new race takes place when, over several generations, individuals in one group reproduce more frequently among themselves than they do with individuals in other groups. This process is most apparent when the individuals live in diverse geographic areas and therefore evolve unique, recognizable adaptations (such as skin color) that are advantageous in their specific environments. But differentiation also occurs under less extreme circumstances. Zoologists and evolutionists refer to such differentiated populations as races. (Within the formal taxonomic nomenclature of biology, races are termed subspecies). Zoologists have identified two or more races (subspecies) in most mammalian species.

Unless one is a religious fundamentalist and believes that man was created in the image and likeness of God, it is foolish to believe that human beings are exempt from biological classification and the laws of evolution that apply to all other life forms. Of course, individuals vary greatly within each racial group and should be treated as such. Nonetheless, much has been learned by studying the statistical differences between the various human races. In my book Race, Evolution, and Behavior (1995, Transaction Publishers), as well as in other recent writings (e.g., the February 1996 issue of Current Anthropology), I review the behavioral, morphological, and physiological differences between the three major human races—mongoloid, caucasoid, and negroid—and show that these statistical differences are constant across both historical time, national boundaries, and political and economic systems.

Here I will briefly summarize the findings. Asians and Africans consistently aggregate at opposite ends, with Europeans intermediate, on a continuum that includes over 60 anatomical and social variables. These 60 variables include brain size, intelligence, sexual habits, fertility, personality, temperament, speed of maturation, and longevity. If race were an arbitrary, socially-constructed concept, devoid of all biological meaning, such consistent relationships would not exist.

Those objecting to the concept of race argue that the taxonomic definitions are arbitrary and subjective. Although critics are correct to point out that the variation within each race is extremely large, that there is disagreement as to exactly how many races there are, and that there is a blurring of category edges because of admixture, they are in error when they claim that classifications are arbitrary. For example, race-critic Jared Diamond, in the 1994 issue of Discover magazine, surveyed half a dozen geographically variable traits and formed very different races depending on which traits he picked. Classifying people using anti-malarial genes, lactose tolerance, fingerprint patterns, or skin color resulted in the Swedes of Europe being placed in the same category as the Xhosa and Fulani of Africa, the Ainu of Japan, and the Italians of Europe.

Jared Diamond’s classifications, however, are arbitrary and nonsensical because they have little, if any, predictive value beyond the initial classification. More significantly, they confuse the scientific meaning of race, that is, a recognizable (or distinguishable) geographic population. In everyday life, as in evolutionary biology, a “negroid” is someone whose ancestors were born in sub-Saharan Africa, and likewise for a “caucasoid” and a “mongoloid.” This definition fits with the temporal bounds offered by the best current theory of human evolution. Thus, since Homo sapiens first appeared in Africa about 200,000 years ago, branched off into Europe about 110,000 years ago, and into Asia 70,000 years after that, a “negroid” is someone whose ancestors, between 4,000 and (to accommodate recent migrations) 20 generations ago, were born in sub-Saharan Africa—and likewise, for a caucasoid and a mongoloid.

Social definitions—that is, self-identification and other-identification actually accord quite well with the physical evidence. Mongoloids, caucasoids, and negroids can be distinguished on the basis of obvious differences in skeletal morphology, hair and facial features, as well by blood groups and DNA fingerprints. Forensic anthropologists regularly classify skeletons of decomposed bodies by race. For example, narrow nasal passages and a short distance between eye sockets identify a caucasoid person, distinct cheekbones characterize a mongoloid person, and nasal openings shaped like an upside down heart typify a negroid person. In certain criminal investigations, the race of a perpetrator can be identified from blood, semen, and hair samples. To deny the predictive validity of race at this level is nonscientific and unrealistic.

The mean pattern of educational and economic achievement within multi-racial countries such as Canada and the United States has increasingly been found to prove valid internationally. For example, it is not often recognized, perhaps because it contradicts the politically correct theories that intelligence is purely a matter of socio-economic conditions, that Asian-Americans and Asians in Asia often outscore white Americans and white Europeans on IQ tests and on tests of educational achievement (even though the tests were largely developed by Europeans and white Americans for use in a Euro-American culture). Blacks in the Caribbean, Britain, Canada and sub-Saharan Africa as well as in the United States have low IQ scores relative to whites. For violent crime, analyses of INTERPOL data from the 1980s and 1990s show the same international distribution that occurs within the United States (that is, Asians least, Europeans in the middle, and Africans most). A similar racial gradient is found both within the U.S. and globally for measures of sexual activity and frequencies of sexually transmitted diseases such as AIDS (based on World Health Organization data).

One neurohormonal contributor to crime and reproductive behavior is testosterone. Studies show that black college students and military veterans have three percent to 19 percent more testosterone than their white counterparts. The Japanese have even lower amounts than whites. Sex hormones are circulated throughout the body and are known to activate many brain-behavior systems involving aggression and reproduction. For example, around the world the rate of dizygotic twinning per 1,000 births (caused by a double ovulation), is less than four among Asians, eight among Europeans, and 16 or greater among Africans. The differences in multiple birthing are known to be heritable through the race of the mother regardless of the race of the father, as found in Asian/European matings in Hawaii and European/African matings in Brazil.

Publication of The Bell Curve brought widespread public attention to the research on race that has been accumulating over the last 30 years in technical and specialist journals that demonstrably challenges each and every article of the dogma of biological egalitarianism. Startling, and alarming to many, is the conclusion that follows from these data that if all people were treated the same, most average race differences would not disappear. With egalitarianism under siege, there has been a major effort to get the “race genie” back in the bottle, to squeeze the previously tabooed toothpaste back into the tube, to suppress or deny the latest scientific evidence on race, genetics, and behavior.

Regardless of the extent to which the media promote “politically correct,” but scientifically wrong, resolutions from professional societies such as the American Anthropological Association, facts remain facts and require appropriate scientific, not political, explanation. On average, the Chinese, Koreans, and Japanese are more similar to each other and are different from Australians, Israelis and the Swedes, who in turn are similar to each other and are different from Nigerians, Kenyans, and Jamaicans. None of this should be construed as meaning that environmental factors play no part individual development. But with each passing year and each new study, the evidence for the genetic contribution to individual and group differences becomes more firmly established than ever.
