Following Nandalal’s previous post on Racism a curious incident struck me earlier today.
As I was walking along in the corner of my left eye I noticed an East Asian lady and then almost immediately as I turned my head right I noticed another East Asian lady on the other side of the square (it’s a fairly large square so it wasn’t as though they were friends or anything; just two unconnected East Asian ladies strolling in London).
At any rate I almost immediately subconsciously registered the first as a maid and the second as a cool singleton or yummy mummy. Obviously there were lots of indicators (clothing, attitude of the walk etc) but what was obviously was the racial difference. The first was a South East Asian/Philipino (soft rounder features ruddy skinned) and the second was a North East East / Japanese/Korean (high cheekbones light skinned).
It brought to mind the idea that within a race or racial grouping; the people exhibiting more northern/elongated (which are considered more refined/elegant) features usually ascend to the top or predominate in the elite. It’s more of an observation than a theory (Steve Sailer has talked about this in Latin context) but even within increasingly diverse societies & multi-racial elites it is the northern types that predominate.
Obviously this ties in with the old (racist?) theories (that also was elaborated by Ibn Khaldun) that I recently read on Steve Sailer (maybe on the comments board) that Southern societies are easy, populous and soft whereas Northern societies (the non-frigid regions) are hard, tough and striving. The Northern features and looks therefore become associated with the aristocratic one and I’m worried that this northern bias (rather than say to look white) is what drives the racial transformation that is happening throughout the developing world (eyelid surgery, skin lightening, plastic surgery)?
This is need to conform within the the “northern ideal” of the same racial type is perhaps what is the predominant aesthetic trend in the developing world. I could be wrong; it’s not gospel but we need to diagnose the problem before condemning it and/or arriving at a solution. Why do South Asians want to be fair when just yesterday I was reading an article by a Celtic girl bemoaning about her lack of tanning ability; skin color preference seems to be far more class, aristocratic striving than any absolute measure.
