We’re doing a twofer here. Lance Welton’s article, republished below, makes the point that the denial of race in relation to the spread of the coronavirus and much else by the Woke crowd will actually cause racism in cases like these. Were the fact of race and race differences, including that some races are relatively immune to the coronavirus, openly discussed, fear and aversion would be mitigated. Racial differences in disease prevalence, but so much else besides, are realities, as Lance Welton’s work repeatedly shows (in addition to others’). We recommend his work for the Unz Review.
And yes, as more cases of the Coronavirus emerge, it does indeed appear that Chinese people are far more susceptible.
According to a report by Zerohedge today and from Lance Welton below, a few Caucasian people are finally getting the Coronavirus, but it seems to be no big deal at all. Zerohedge explains the substantial difference between Chinese and White people that may be in play when it comes to getting infected with the Coronavirus – the prevalence of a ‘receptor’ enzyme called ACE2, which Chinese people have far more of:
With SARS (sudden acute respiratory syndrome), another coronavirus, researchers discovered that one of the ways the disease attaches itself is through an enzyme known as ACE2, a ‘functional receptor’ produced in several organs (oral and nasal mucosa, nasopharynx, lung, stomach, small intestine, colon, skin, lymph nodes, thymus, bone marrow, spleen, liver, kidney, and brain).
ACE2 is also “abundantly present in humans in the epithelia of the lung and small intestine, which might provide possible routes of entry for the SARS-CoV,” while it was also observed “in arterial and venous endothelial cells and arterial smooth muscle cells” – which would include the heart.
This has led some to speculate that Asians, who have higher concentrations of ACE2 (per the 1000 genome project) may be affected to a greater degree than those of European ancestry, who produce the least of it – and have largely been the asymptomatic ‘super spreaders‘ such as Diamond Princess coronavirus victim Rebecca Frasure.
We’re inserting the Zerohedge video of Oregon resident Rebecca Frasure‘s interview with Canada’s CBC (skip to 2:05 minutes). Lance Welton below discusses other Caucasians who have only been mildly affected, such as Welshman Connor Reed, who caught the virus in Wuhan:
STILL No Non-Chinese Deaths from Coronavirus, But the WASHINGTON POST Wants You to Rat Out Your Neighbors Anyway
Earlier by Lance Welton: Do You Know All Coronavirus Victims Appear To Be Chinese? Thought Not!
I have previously reported the case of Dr Noah Carl, a young Cambridge University political scientist whom the once-august university fired for publishing peer-reviewed research on the subject of “race” and for collaborating with like-minded academics. One paper of Carl’s particularly upset the Woking Classes because it turned one of their many fallacious arguments against the biological concept of “race” on its head: it argued, in effect, that the Truth about race will actually Set Us Free. This is directly relevant to the current panic over the Coronavirus, where we see the negative consequences of Race Denialism playing out all too clearly, and even possibly dangerously.
In 2018, Carl published an article in the journal Evolutionary Psychological Science entitled “How Stifling Debate Around Race, Genes and IQ Can Do Harm”, April 28, 2018. Whereas Leftists insist that we shouldn’t discuss “race” because the “harm” that this might do—in terms of encouraging “racism,” giving “fuel” to “racist” groups, and challenging “equality”—Carl countered that not discussing it can potentially have worse consequences than acknowledging “race”:
- Firstly, if you believe in the Blank Slate view, then you may make Soviet-like attempts to improve humanity, which only make things worse because “human nature” is strongly genetic.
- Secondly, if we are all genetically equal in our intellectual capacities, then the the only way that a group, such as Ashkenazi Jews, could have been so successful would be through immoral behaviour, providing people with an incentive to persecute them.
- Thirdly, if you don’t acknowledge race and do not research medical conditions suffered from disproportionally by specific races, and you do not take race differences in medicine-responsiveness or alcohol or disease resistance into account, this can actually lead to needless deaths.
- Fourthly, if you suppress the discussion of “race,” you might find that, for example, fear of being accused of “racism” caused officials in Rotherham in northern England turn a blind eye to, and even cover up, the fact of gangs of Muslim South Asian youths grooming and raping teenage white girls. [The grooming gang cover-up is Britain’s real racism scandal, By Alison Pearson, Telegraph, January 21, 2020]. Similarly, Carl notes that when parents in Oxfordshire, where there were also Pakistani grooming and rape of white underage girls, asked why no arrests had been made. the police actually said frankly that they were under pressure not to arrest Pakistanis in case it looked “racist.”
Thus, race denialism actually caused harm—repeatedly.
Of course, there’s another consequence of suppressing the truth about “race:” it can cause people to be more racist.
What if there were a deadly virus spreading around the world that had started with a particular race? Inevitably, rational people would do everything they possibly could to avoid that race. You wouldn’t socialize with people of that race. You wouldn’t shake hands with people from that race. Indeed, you’d cross the road to avoid them.
This is exactly what’s happening, so we are told, with regard to Chinese people and other East Asians, due to the fact that the Coronavirus started in China.
The Ruling Class’s response: this rational reaction must be stamped out. The Washington Post recently posted an extraordinary Stalinist invitation for readers to inform on their neighbors:
Punishing whites may well be an end in itself for the Ruling Class. But the fact is this particular outbreak of “racism” could be stopped cold if we would only calmly and openly discuss the issue of “race.”
It is still the case that only Chinese people have died of this virus. This implies that other races may be more resistant to it, as I discussed last week.
This week, a handful of “Germans” working in a car factory have reportedly contracted Corona from a Chinese colleague. Of course, they too could be ethnically Chinese, as has generally been the case when this disease has occurred outside China—the media won’t say. But their symptoms are reported to be extremely “mild” [New coronavirus can spread before symptoms start, German case suggests, By Rachael Rettner, Live Science, February 3, 2020]. Similarly, whites did catch the 1982 SARS disease, but suffered less from it.
This is in line with the finding, reported in the journal PLOS Pathogens, that viruses that jump the species barrier, such as Corona, become less and less virulent as they spread away from the place where the “jump” was made [The Causes and Consequences of Changes in Virulence following Pathogen Host Shifts, By Ben Longdon et al., 2015].
Indeed, I can only find two proven cases of whites catching Corona virus as of Saturday, February 8, U.S. Eastern Time. One was a British man on a ship quarantined off Japan. But his situation does not appear to serious either [Coronavirus: British man on his honeymoon among 61 confirmed cases on cruise ship, By David Mercer, Sky News, February 7, 2020]. The other was also British. Connor Reed from North Wales, below, caught it in Wuhan, the disease’s epicentre where it is presumably most dangerous, refused antibiotics, treated himself with hot whisky and honey, and survived [Coronavirus: British man who caught virus ‘beat flu with glass of hot whisky’, by Bradley Jolly, MirrorOnline, February 3, 2020]
Why is our Ruling Class suppressing the truth? Their desire to punish whites is certainly one reason. But the deeper motive: a fanatical determination to maintain the myth that “race is a social construct.”
As British Indian journalist Angela Saini claimed in her widely-touted 2019 book Superior: The Return of Race Science [p.123], “race” is not a biological reality, beyond supposedly “superficial” traits such as skin color and morphology.
Thus in Saini World, it is impossible for there to be race differences in disease prevalence, because that might imply that “race” was a biological reality and that might imply that all races are not “equal.” But we are all equal. And if you don’t agree, then you’re a bad person like President Trump.
And in “Saini World,” whites can die of the Coronavirus. Which means they will avoid Chinese people. And you end up with Woke headlines of unparalleled virtue-signalling dementedness, like this from a Philadelphia Inquirer editorial: “Coronavirus: racism and exclusion can hurt as much as a virus.” January 30, 2020.
That’s right folks. Racism and discrimination are as painful as having a very serious form of flu that you may well die of.
My point: there’s no rational reason to “discriminate” against the Chinese, and so inflict on them a pain worse than nearly dying. You’re most unlikely to catch Corona and, if you do, the symptoms will be mild.
The “racism” that Corona Virus has allegedly unleashed (despite “race” being entirely a social construct, so how we even identify people as being East Asian is unclear) is entirely a consequence of the failure of the Ruling Class to (openly) accept and discuss the biological reality of “race”—including race differences in disease prevalence.
Their actions have caused “racism.” If any Chinese person is discriminated against or, worse, attacked because of Corona in the coming months, then that person will know who to blame:
Angela Saini and Ruling Class science-deniers like her.
