One of the core claims of #RaceRealism (AKA #ScientificRacism) is that white supremacy is genetic - things like the mutation that let northern Europeans drink cow-milk (nevermind that African groups who herd cattle have the same mutation).

Their theory is really wild - like the genes that produces the enzymes to consume lactose drifted over from the yeast cultures that ferment milk into other dairy products.

Basically, they're claiming that Swede genes are made of cheese.

(Who am I to disagree?)

Wenn ein IB-Faschist und geübter Lügner wie Martin #Sellner seinen #Rassismus etwas zu deutlich aufblitzen lässt: Tamilische Gesänge sind für ihn offenbar nur mit einem „tamilischen Palatalbereich“, also Stimmapparat, authentisch zu realisieren. (Palatum = lat. für Gaumen)
Das mag unspektakulär klingen, ist aber sehr bezeichnend. Der Stimmapparat ist bei allen Menschen prinzipiell gleich. Es gibt keine Sprache, die aus anatomischen Gründen nur für die Sprecher einer bestimmten Ethnie oder „Rasse“ artikulierbar wäre.

Das anzunehmen zeugt von einer akademisch verbrämten rassenideologischen Überzeugung, die jeder Grundlage entbehrt. Von rechten Institutionen wie dem #PioneerFund werden solche Ideen gezielt in den wissenschaftl. Diskurs eingeschleust.
