|Satoshi Kanazawa can kick rocks and kiss every black woman’s arse. Skadaddle!
Black Bloggers who addressed and shut down the insidious racist and demeaning pseudo-scientific research by evolutionary psychologist, Satoshi Kanazawa, should be proud of themselves. Kanazawa published an article exploring why “Black Women are Less Attractive” on Psychology Today several weeks ago, and was justly met with harsh criticism and opposition.
On Friday, Psychology Today issued a formal apology stating that:
We deeply apologize for the pain and offense that this post caused. Psychology Today’s mission is to inform the public, not to provide a platform for inflammatory and offensive material. Psychology Today does not tolerate racism or prejudice of any sort.Soon after the post on Psychology Today, the well-established publication had to pull the article due to the flood of comments and emails sent by people all over the world. It was after the criticism did they decide to review the research only find out, that measuring beauty is a subjective process, and could never be objective.
|I’m beautiful bitches.|
Anyway, the racist shut down gets even better, the students at the London School of Economics are demanding that the Kanazawa be removed from his position.
However, let put this in a perspective in which everyone is held accountable by starting with the institution that published Kanazawa’s work and the one that funds his research. This is where snubbing true racism gets lost in the emotional and political sauce. They all knew of his work, and they okay’d it. Kanazawa is a little fish.
I suggest a boycott of Psychology Today, fuck an apology. And serious review of the Psychology Department at LSE, and the school itself. I attended a conference there in 2010, right after the Underwear bomber, and I got profiled damn near every time I went through those fucking gates.
But for now, I will celebrate with you lot. We did something revolutionary. Even the ones who call themselves bourgeois, uppity, house Negroes, and the like. We burned one plantation house down, even if you loved to live in it.
And my sisters, you are beautiful.
