So the Tumblr blog I’m reading is trying to argue against interracial marriage by saying it destroys specially different genomes (yo there any scientific backing for this shit?) and so destroys race which destroys culture which destroys diversity which is good for everyone?
Trying to understand this.
It’s not working.
This is the one she means.
People who advocate such bizarre concepts as “racial purity” often completely misunderstand the lesson of history: that things change. The people today are the product of centuries of moving, invasions, changes, intermarriages, and whatever else.
In his case, as a British nationalist, he believes in racial purity of the English, or possibly even just white, race. The thing is today’s English are made up of lots of what were formerly different peoples: Angles, Saxons, Normans, Scots, Picts, and so on.
So what does it mean, to be “traditional” if your traditions are not intrinsically linked to race?
I didn’t reblog his thing directly, because it is a horrible blog and will probably only invite flames and a pointless, fruitless argument. But no doubt, it is pretty scary that those ideas even continue to exist.
There was a time when nationalism was a cool fad for all the young revolutionaries. This was about 100 years ago. It has changed a lot, and now it’s really not a productive idea. The new, progressive and productive world is a cosmopolitan one, with influences from around the world. That enriches it and makes it miles better than it ever could be with distinct and separate peoples.
