New "Granny Standing for Truth" Blog Raises Question of Whether Biological "Race" is White Supremacist Propaganda Concept

The following is in response to a new blog I saw, called "Granny Standing for Truth," and addresses one word I saw in the right panel: the word "race".

Granny said,
"All of my life I observed people and often wondered why hatred between the human races (sic) exists.
According to the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Science, Office of Biological and Environmental Research, Human Genome Program:
"DNA studies do not indicate that separate classifiable subspecies (races) exist within modern humans. While different genes for physical traits such as skin and hair color can be identified between individuals, no consistent patterns of genes across the human genome exist to distinguish one race from another. There also is no genetic basis for divisions of human ethnicity. People who have lived in the same geographic region for many generations may have some alleles in common, but no allele will be found in all members of one population and in no members of any other."
In other words, the Human Genome Project has proven that, as a matter of scientific fact, that which we call "race" does not exist as a matter of biology, and so all references to "race" are references to a fallacy.

Be reassured. There is no hatred between the "races" because there are no "races." Because there are no "races" there can be no "hatred between the races."

What we DO have is hatred between people with different skin colors and this hatred has been reinforced by the belief that we were from VERY, VERY DIFFERENT RACES should have a VERY,VERY DIFFICULT TIME treating each other as equal human beings.

If you want to reduce the hatred between people of different skin colors, then start by insisting on the scientific fact that "races" did not exist before and they do not exist now, and so the most fundamental difference between people with brown and white skin really isn't fundamental at all. It's literally, and as a matter of genetic science, "skin deep." Actually, even our skin is virtually the same, except for the amount of melanin in it.

Look at the evidence: As long as the need for commonality of blood types is respected and other specifics that have nothing to do with skin color, every organ of the human body of a Black person can be transplanted into the human body of a white person, including the skin, and it won't make any difference that the donor and recipient had different skin colors. How can we be fundamentally different if all of our parts are interchangeable?

Why are all of our parts interchangeable? Because skin color doesn't make any difference medically for the most part. Blood type is 100 or 1,000 times more important than skin color.

Let me ask your readers: Would you rather have a heart transplant from someone with your blood type or someone with your skin color? If you say skin color, I'll weep over your ignorance at your funeral.

And, would you rather have a skin graft from someone with your blood type or someone with your skin color? If you say skin color, again I'll weep over your ignorance at your funeral.

Skin color doen't make much difference medically or genetically. It's de minimus. What separates the so-called "races" most is the white supremacist propaganda-based belief that "races" exist in first places.

Look at the question scientifically. What scientific question does the belief in "races" solve? NONE! In fact, the belief in "races" killed many people when whites refused to mix blood from people of different skin colors at blood banks.
"I don't want blood from a nigra!"
Then DIE on the operating table, you color-aroused idiot! Your decision to die for lack of a blood transfusion from a Black person is evidence of a life-threatening color-aroused mental illness, but is NOT a decision based on any medical necessity. It's based on prejudice and medical ignorance.

The sooner we stop using the word "race", the sooner we'll stop arguing over it. Here's an analogy: If your regularly and ubiquitously refer women as a c**ts, then when will you stop arguing over that? NEVER! The very word gaurantees that the arguments will be infinite, perpetual, angry . . . The word itself guarantees that the arguments will never end. You have defined women in a way that assures that you and they will NEVER, EVER agree about anything.

Here's another analogy. You refuse to eat chocolate cake because you believe that chocolate is inherently poisonous. Isn't it a step forward when you admit that chocolate is NOT inherently poisonous, and that you just don't find it aesthetically pleasing?

If you believe that chocolate is inherently poisonous, then it only makes sense that you will try to eradicate chocolate from your diet and from everyone else's. That may cause some perpetual fights between you and those who disagree with your version of science.

However, if you can realize that you simply don't like the taste of chocolate, then you are no longer mentally ill (delusional) and you are merely someone with a personal but largely insignificant preference. You need not persecute everyone who likes chocolate or sells chocolate, because you realize that your preference is merely your preference. The word "race" to describe different skin colors posits a reality that is universal, not personal and individual and idiosyncratic.

The news media tells us 100 times per day that we are from different races, and thereby reassures us that there is a universal reason based in science why are incompatible. As long as you believe chocolate is inherently poisonous (which is like believing that "race" exists) and you believe your preference is based on universal science rather than peculiar individual preference, then your behavior will follow your delusional beliefs.

What would happen in a control test if a teacher told half of the students of a class that they were fundamentally different from the rest of the class and that it would therefore be impossible for them to get along with those "others"? Predicably that class would experience more strife than would a control test class that was not given any such warning.

The word "race" is like the suggestive warning from the teacher that the expectation is, based on experience and science, that people will not get along. Surprise, surprise! It works! People who are told that they are from different races have more difficulty approaching one another, are more suspicious of one another, and end up fighting with one another. If people cannot undertand that the word "race" itself separates people unnecessarily, then they haven't even begun to confront the real reason they can't get along: they are the victims of hundreds of years of white supremacist "race" propaganda.

I have a friend that has a heart transplant as do I have a heart transplant. He is a Black man , his donor heart a Mexican teenager, it works, and his heart has no race issues nor does he!

Medically there are some differences with respect to diabetes and heart disease. But only of a functional nature, certain drugs respond better for African American patients, than for Caucasians. Many drug studies have been skewed to the White side, therefore not fairly assessing the needs of "all peoples".

I loved your article , I commend your logic. AND I bet you like Chocolate!!!!!!!!!!!!! Stephen M.Harrelson

Your entire post is a response to one word you saw in the right panel?

You should read the woman's whole blog before you start preaching to the choir--shm.

I'd be surprised if anything you wrote in your post would be a surprise to GSFT--she's a wise woman.

Thank you , Your comment was no surprise either to me! Stephen
