View Full Version : 'Racial and Ethnic Self-Segregation', by Prof. Kevin MacDonald

The articles reflect the attitude that there is a moral imperative for whites to live in integrated neighborhoods, but it is entirely benign when blacks do it. It is similar to the immigration issue writ small: Massive non-white immigration is a moral imperative for Western societies, but other societies have no such obligation. Societies from Israel to Korea to Zimbabwe are free to preserve their people and culture. And they are intent on doing so

Two recent articles (see here (http://forums.skadi.net/redirector.php?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.chic agotribune.com%2Fnews%2Flocal%2Fchi-segregation-26-dec26%2C0%2C976255.story) and here (http://forums.skadi.net/redirector.php?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.chic agotribune.com%2Fnews%2Flocal%2Fchi-oswego-side_29dec29%2C0%2C2172024.story)) in the Chicago Tribune show that self-segregation is still the norm in 21st-century America. When whites move to Chicago, they naturally gravitate to the North Side, while blacks head to the South Side. Many of these whites doubtless voted for Obama, but “they aren’t nearly as interested in living in neighborhoods rich in color.”

Indeed, one of the articles cites a study indicating that whites prefer neighborhoods in which no more than 17% of the population is black and another in which whites rate neighborhoods higher if it is a white neighborhood independent of the physical condition of the neighborhood. As usual, whites are acting on these preferences with white flight. Whites make up a declining percentage of the population (now 28%) as they retreat to suburban areas where they can live in neighborhoods with people like themselves.

This behavior conflicts with the official multicultural utopian attitudes that are so apparent in the articles. But it does conform to psychological research that people naturally prefer to associate with people who are similar to themselves. In fact, there are deep psychological roots to ethnocentrism that make us attracted to and more trusting of genetically similar others. Douglas Massey, Princeton University expert on segregation is quoted to the effect that “although white attitudes have changed and they don’t believe in segregation in principle very much anymore. . .in intimate settings their comfort level isn’t very high.” Sociologists such as Robert Putnam have also shown that ethnic homogeneity is associated with greater trust of others and greater political participation.

Of course, whites can’t be explicit about these preferences. Colin Lampark, the white engineer who moved to Lincoln Park, claims he didn’t move to the South Side because “just doesn’t know anyone on the South Side.” This would seem to be an example of what I call “implicit whiteness”:

Those people here who think everyone talks too much about Jews should really watch this video:


One of the key factors he talks about is how the core of many of these anti-Germanic movements are strongly identified Jews.
