Las leo en ese artículo que me pasa Montcalm (The Race FAQ):
«‘Human races are evolving away from each other,’ Harpending says. ‘Genes are evolving fast in Europe, Asia, and Africa, but almost all of these are unique to their continent of origin. We are getting less alike, not merging into a single, mixed humanity.’ …
» ‘Our study denies the widely held assumption or belief that modern humans … appeared 40,000 years ago, have not changed since and that we are all pretty much the same. We show that humans are changing relatively rapidly on a scale of centuries to millennia, and that these changes are different in different continental groups.»
«The increase in human population from millions to billions in the last 10,000 years accelerated the rate of evolution because ‘we were in new environments to which we needed to adapt,’ Harpending adds. ‘And with a larger population, more mutations occurred.’
La evolución genética del Homo sapiens se aceleró tras la separación en continentes. Las razas humanas están separándose genéticamente, no convergiendo. Casi no me lo creo, pero si los estudios genéticos lo muestran…
Ibn Saud, who founded Saudi Arabia in the 1920s, consolidated his victory over other desert chieftains by marrying 22 women, typically the daughters of his former rivals. Thus, today’s vast Saudi ruling family represents the intermixing of the tribes, which has helped it survive in power for 80 years.
On the other hand, the wealthy Syrian Jews of Brooklyn, with few political threats hanging over them here in America, don’t need blood relations with other power centers, so the community fiercely ostracizes anyone who marries outside it.
Or, political entrepreneurs can attempt to widen or narrow their followers’ working definition of who their relatives are by rhetorical means. For example, in the 1960s, black leaders encouraged African-Americans to call each other «brother» and «sister» to build solidarity.
El tribalismo racista de árabes, judíos y negros desvelado. ¡Y encima se hacen las víctimas!
