    It all comes down to Boasian anthropology.


    Boasian anthropology is the radical rejection of essentialism, reducing the explanation of every differences around the idea of "discrimination" or cultural bias.
    It pretends everything is a "social construct"
    Boasian social constructivism is now the paradigm of mainstream western ideologies, feminism, anti-racism etc...

    You would think Jews like Boas would know better.

    I mean Jews are the best example that people discriminated against can be ridiculously successful.

    Although, I wonder how smart Jews really are if many of them don't get that.

    I also wonder how smart Jews really are if the left wing ideals like Boas promoted are causing the Jewish community to mix out of the Jewish line.

    I mean Jews are on the verge of extinction of due to out breeding.

    I suspect the Jew is just more ambitious than everyone else, not more intelligent.

    This is a thread I wrote in 2015. That was when I saw a surge in pseudoevolutionist publications denouncing racial considerations in medicine. I observed pseudoevolutionism obscure and muddle the concept of race among newer publications in both evolutionary biology and forensic anthropology, and I fear medicine is the next victim.
