    Question Are We Born with a Sense of Racial Awareness or Are We Taught?

    I think it is a trait with which children are born. Although, I do believe it can be heightened with guidance. I believe that children and adults typically identify with those that most closely resemble themselves. I believe that this was a basic function developed for survival, especially in areas where differing peoples lived in close proximity. If an individual looks similar to you, speaks in a similar manner, and dresses like you than that person is most likely from your clan and unlikely to do physical harm to you.

    What do you think?

    There has been some research done showing that even very young babies have a clear preference for their own race.

    Does someone have link?

    No, more like this:

    Does it not take two months or so before infants develop sufficient eyesight to actually see anything? Amazingly quick little learners.


    And the same goes for adults:

    Well of course we are born with it. It's a natural and observable difference, it's not a logical theorem or something that is complicated to understand.

    Remember when you were a little kid and at recess only played with people of your own gender, since the other had 'cooties'? Surely if children notice difference in gender they can observe a difference in race.

    The Tabula Rasa

    Better known as the "Blank Slate". This is an Epistlemological idea that humans are not born with a natural developed "mind", but that the "mind" is developed via experience and perception. This is the "Nature vs Nuture" Epistlemological Debate.

    As for myself, I believe in both Nature and Nuture. Such that the mind naturally exists with assorted "Categories" (space, time, quantity, quality, etc.) that are put to use on the raw data of experience and perception which in turn modifies and develops these Categories. These applications and modifications of Categories is what creates the "mind" as opposed to brain. A further exposition of this can be found in the Epistlemology studies of both Kant and Locke.

    As a Jesuit teacher once said, "Give me a child for the first ten years of it's life and I will give you a life long Catholic". And as the Nazi's said, etc., etc....

    Perhaps both?

    It was only a few years ago that I became racially aware myself. Reintroduced would be a better way of putting it.
    I guess one can say that I am a born-again Germanic, who is not only being taught but is also teaching himself.
    Skadi has indeed been like a school for me. I have learned a hundred times more here than I ever did in college.

    I am inclined to feel that we are born with it.
    Otherwise our enemies would not have to subvert Germanics from the time they can comprehend the first sentence about White guilt.

    Yes I think we are born with a racial awareness, if we weren't we wouldn't have articles in magazines asking "Is your baby racist?" The media and education system try and destroy that pride early on, fortunetely for some of us it continues into adulthood

    Ronan, I too, am finding that this board is a place of learning about ourselves and where we came from. Just like you, I've become more racially aware of myself and my history which is something they just don't teach in schools. This board is awesome and a place that feels like 'home'. I am even beginning to read about Germanic Heathenry and the Old Ways and it is making much more sense to me than any conventional 'religion' I've ever studied. Something about it feels 'right' to me even though I don't understand all of it yet, I'm not seeing all those red flags jump up in my mind like other religions and practices. Time will tell I guess, but I'm liking what I'm learning so far and feel a sense of peace and belonging.

    Nature[both human and otherwise] has a strict set of rules, not the least of which is the inner segregation of every member of every speceis upon this earth!

    Humans may think they are above this, but the truth is we are not!

    You won't find grey foxes breeding with red foxes, and so on , and so forth.

    The fact is that race mixing is a learned behavior, Only practiced by domesticated animals!
