    Interesting site about the KKK and hate. However I don't agree that racism is just the byproduct of pain though i think it's a component of it. As for how I became a Racialist. Coming from an Urban area I am well aware of the problems of Multiculturalism poses to White Culture. It has nothing to do wit pain for me. It is more a matter of "Identity" and preservering that "Identity".

    I believe that race, evolution and progress (mainly the same thing) take precedence over any kind of culture. Cultures can be re-created and revitalised while races can't be.
    "slavic" languages are absolutely arteficial (Read "slawenlegende"). The "glagolica", invented by a bunch of monks, is nothing but an ancient esperanto, creating new words, definitions and alphabet out of regional slangs.

    The craddle of European Civilization comes from the North. All blond people originate from the north. So if you see a blond-blue eyed Slovene, Russian, Czech, Polak ect., you can be 100% sure that his ancient ancestors originated from "Germanics" (Germanic = Nordic).
    "slovenja" was the settelment of the Langobards = Germanics/Teutons. "Poland" of the Goths and East-Vandals ect. ect. What do "slavs" tell us about their origin?
    Some silly story that they originate from some swamps in the east and popped out of no where into history.

    So you see my dear "Gorostan" [=Triglav], you are in reality a "Germanic" indoctrinated with panslav propaganda and historic fantasy stories. ~Dr. Brandt, former TNP and Skadi member

    I don't believe that one is born with a pre-set configuration for racist tendencies...you take two small children and put them in a room together with some toys, and regardless of their race they will start playing with each other. They will notice a physical difference, of course, but if they were never taught to hate then the difference will have no meaning or actual affect on either child's opinion. Children are very openminded, thus making perfect "receptacles" for the ideas, opinions and beliefs of their authoritive figures (parents, siblings, etc).

    Most people become racist by either being raised by parents who were racist, or from personal experience...such as a bad incident with someone of another race or just because they don't like the way people from other races act (either collectively, or individualy).

    It might be disconcerting for someone who is white, raised around other whites and lives a relatively "white life" to be exposed to the culture of blacks or mexicans or asians, etc...unfamiliarity breeds contempt. Humans are naturally put off by what they do not fully understand or immediately identify with. Especially today with all the Multi-culturalism, white people are losing their sense of self and are experiencing how it feels to be the minority...it's scary for a lot of people (and even enraging for some too), so naturally racism takes the place of fear and anger and provides a scape-goat for one's insecurities.

    Post Re: What Causes Racism?

    Racism is an evolutionary, psychological instinct. A genetic group that shares its resources with other genetic groups will not survive in the long run, it is all about the "selfish gene". Just like we have more feelings for our family (very close genetically), we have more feelings for those of our extended family/genotype (pretty close genetically), and feelings of aversion towards those who are very dissimilar comes naturally.

    Another example would be our feelings towards animals. Cats and dogs are close to us genetically, while snakes and spiders are not. Therefore we perceive cats and dogs as cute, since we recognize much of ourselves in them.

    Our main problem is that this racist instinct is weaker among us Northern-Europeans than among, for example, semites. The cause is that, historically, the main enemy in the cold North was a harsh climate, and because of this a stranger was more often seen as a potential ally against nature than as an enemy. Therefore we are more altruist. In the Middle-East, the main enemy was other tribes. Interestingly enough, there have been studies which show that white infants are less scared of strangers than jewish children are (I dont know about other semitic infants, but probably they are scared of strangers too). This also shows that racism is a natural instinct. Like all instincts it can of course be modified by environment.

    Racism:
    1 : a belief that race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race
    2 : racial prejudice or discrimination.

    I am not sure I believe the first definition is true, nor do I fall into the category of the second definition...although I have my strong preferences. Having participated for awhile here at Skadi I have learned the difference between the above and being a White Preservationist. I am certainly the latter.

    As far as cause - I consider it personal preference that can be developed and influenced in a number of ways. No different than not wanting to breed with an excessively overweight or unattractive person.

    Is it an innate Instinct or is it socially learned?

    Yes.

    Are people born Racist or made that way?

    And yes.

    Post Re: What Causes Racism?

    If we define racism as something which is just about clearly defined races, it has something to do with a certain worldview.
    Even than it can have many different reasons.

    If we define Racism more losely, it is for sure in the human repertoire of behaviour patterns.

    Because it is the in-group and out-group sentiment which is an innate instinct. In modern times these feelings have oftentimes less to do with race, but more with ethnocultural groups, but for the human behaviour pattern this makes no big difference, because on a primitive level of hunter-gatherers your in-group was usually more related to you than your out-group, though there were even in early times exceptions from this rule.

    And if individuals are further away from your group, they might be more dangerous, might have a very different genetic make-up and different social rules which would cause problems.

    So it was just logical to avoid such people or be at least cautious.

    But its not like "a white born baby has natural instincts against blacks", but it is as follows: Parents are white, relatives are white, they speak the same language, they are friendly and all strangers-foreigners can be a threat.

    And if this foreigners are even further away from you than usual strangers, that they might be a threat is even more likely.

    So the child is learning what is in- and outside of the group, which people are reliable, and which might be not.
    This is a totally cultural pattern, but the racist component is obvious if we speak about homogenous groups, which might be one reason why some universalist-egalitarian want the worldwide panmixing in their perverted phantasies.

    Later on the child has to be de-sensitized to accept those foreigners without problem, though, the earlier the more successful this trials will be, because in the early years the child is still learning, and if it is learning a "black man can be as reliable as a white" it might change its mind and later only kognitive and more complex emotional factors might lead to a "secondary kind of racism".

    Thats again one of the reasons why whites MUST SEE so much black in the media, to get de-sensitized.

    If you think about it, you can make out of a white baby an anti-white racist if you say him all the time that coloured persons are more reliable, if it has the impression that this is the case.

    Because genetically determined is just the "fear foreigners, be cautious, prefer your own" thing, BUT WHAT IS YOUR OWN AT ALL, is something which is mostly learned.

    That is the reason why pure Nordids can accept Negroes as brothers and can hate their own, fight their own in fierce battles.
    Because in- and outgroup in later times than early childhood is something more cultural than biological.

    Humans are just not adapted for the modern mass society, their behaviour is basically still made for small groups of related persons.
    Though there are differences from the Neolithicum on and between groups and indivdiuals, its a human constant in modernitiy that their repertoir of behaviour pattern is not optimal adapted to a modern-mass society.

    Thats in turn the reason of his instinct-insecurity, why he is easy to manipulate and can degenerate culturally, getting decadent very fast. Culture should bridge this gap, but today its making the gap even bigger and worse, because the liberalcapitalistic culture has almost nothing to do with the real biological needs of our groups and species.
