Subject: Definitely and necessarily racist
In reply to: andre-12Jun02 's message, "Evolutionary theory not necessarily racist at all.." on 08:26


NOUN: 1. The belief that race accounts for differences in human character or ability and that a particular race is superior to others.

From The American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language: Fourth Edition. 2000.

NOUN. Theory that human abilities etc. are determined by race; belief in superiority of one race over another.

From The Little Oxford Dictionary - 1995

In what way does Paulsen's belief fail to meet the definition of racism? Paulsen believes that certain races are gentically inferior to others. That, to put it simply, is what racism means.

You have evaded a straight answer to my question.

Do you agree with Paulsen that certain races, such as Australian Aborigines are genetically inferior to others? Do you believe that this genetic inferiority is so pronounced that it would take two to three million years of evolution before such races would be the equal of modern man?
