Race is Recognised by the Brain

Errr a slight problem for the liberals here - if race is just a 'social construct' then why does the human brain recognise different racial groups ?

The fact is that this if further evidence that the multi-cultural system and racial diversity causes cognitive shutdown - in that empathy is the basis of society.

But empathy does not exist in multi-cultural societies.

This is also proved by research such in Bowling Alone by Robert Puttnam which shows that the more racially diverse a society is - the more withdrawn, isolated, unhappy people become and the more society breaks down.

Diversity is not our strength - Diversity is a curse that kills society and communities.

A minority of integrated immigrants can assimilate into a society and community and cause no real problems, but multi-cultural colonisation, as we see all around us, where they live in ghettoes of their own making, impose their own culture upon us and expect us to surrender our culture and where they are forming colonies = the death of society.


Human brain recognizes and reacts to race
April 26, 2010

The human brain fires differently when dealing with people outside of one's own race, according to new research out of the University of Toronto Scarborough.

This research, conducted by social neuroscientists at UofT Scarborough, explored the sensitivity of the "mirror-neuron-system" to race and ethnicity. The researchers had study participants view a series of videos while hooked up to electroencephalogram (EEG) machines. The participants - all white - watched simple videos in which men of different races picked up a glass and took a sip of water. They watched white, black, South Asian and East Asian men perform the task.

Typically, when people observe others perform a simple task, their motor cortex region fires similarly to when they are performing the task themselves. However, the UofT research team, led by PhD student Jennifer Gutsell and Assistant Professor Dr. Michael Inzlicht, found that participants' motor cortex was significantly less likely to fire when they watched the visible minority men perform the simple task. In some cases when participants watched the non-white men performing the task, their brains actually registered as little activity as when they watched a blank screen.

"Previous research shows people are less likely to feel connected to people outside their own ethnic groups, and we wanted to know why," says Gutsell. "What we found is that there is a basic difference in the way peoples' brains react to those from other ethnic backgrounds. Observing someone of a different race produced significantly less motor-cortex activity than observing a person of one's own race. In other words, people were less likely to mentally simulate the actions of other-race than same-race people"

The trend was even more pronounced for participants who scored high on a test measuring subtle racism, says Gutsell.

"The so-called mirror-neuron-system is thought to be an important building block for empathy by allowing people to 'mirror' other people's actions and emotions; our research indicates that this basic building block is less reactive to people who belong to a different race than you," says Inzlicht.

However, the team says cognitive perspective taking exercises, for example, can increase empathy and understanding, thereby offering hope to reduce prejudice. Gutsell and Inzlicht are now investigating if this form of perspective-taking can have measurable effects in the brain.

The team's findings are published in the Journal of Experimental Social Psychology.

OMG step up the Marxist indoctrination if this is true! Of course the Marxist viewpoint and outlook is a social construct inculcated and reinforced at an early age through the education system. If you go to any school in England now you will see posters for "Racism awareness week" and the text books whether they are for French or "civics" will be based around themes like Racism and Asylum etc.
As Andrew Marr of the BBC said, Racism needs to be beaten out of the British.

So we can expect "cognitive perspective taking exercises" to become a part of any future national curriculum under new labour.

Yes I think we can.

A bit like the 'cognitive perspective excercises' that captured American soldiers went through in Vietnam.

I think they used to call it brainwashing didnt they ?

I'm not sure that this is surprising news. It has always been clear to me that our brains react due to environmental conditioning. Our brains will probably react to pics of our favorite foods, relatives, music, etc.

"cognitive perspective taking exercises" cost time and money. Another example of how diversity is an unnecessary burden on the taxpayer. All that time spent on "cognitive perspective taking exercises" is time that could be spent on something more productive, like discovering the cure for cancer. Children dying from leukemia will now have to go without, thanks to diversity.

One phrase you hear on the BBC recently is "how can we restore trust in politicians". Someone needs to tell them about the work of Robert D Putnam and that falling trust in public officials is now inevitable thanks to the left's quest for diversity.

Hi Lormaire,

I hope you are well.

The research has nothing to do with environmental conditioning, this is about the Mirror Neurone system and how it operates.

The same probably applies to all racial groups in that each group is engineered by nature to recognise its own kin units.

That means 'racism' is not a product of the environment - we are all designed to care more for those like us than those who are not.

The forced Marxist-led indoctrination of white peoples has now grown into relentless badgering and blatant racial harrassment both of which tactics are criminal acts.

First, our respective kindred traitors conspire to have our homelands invaded and colonised by non-White Third Worlders whilst, at the same time, forcing White peoples across the planet to assist and participate in their own and their present and future progeny's dispossession, displacement and disenfranchisement of natural human rights along with the ongoing obliteration and outlawing of their various cultures and belief system(s), and the relentless vilification, denegration and denial of their heritages, traditions and racial achievements -

THEN secondly, they, the traitors, proceed to force their ethnic White brethren, by a mixture of devious methodology and threats to livelihood and physical freedom, to empathise with the very non-White Third World invaders who are being enabled and used as tools by satanic Whites to effect all of the above-mentioned goals as well as actual genocide by stealth.

Are we seeing this kind of evil being perpetrated by elitest non-Whites against their own non-White kin in non-White countries? Of, course, not! At least, not yet!

Native European ethno-Nationalism will continue to grow and spread not only in Europe, but in the US and Canada most notably. This development might very well eventually result in the fracturing of America and Canada, and their subsequent evolution into separate countries based primarily on ethnic self-interest and group survival needs.

If so, it is imperative that no White traitor finds a refuge in any of these reclaimed living spaces. If need be, victorious White nations must assist in the elimination of these Communist degenerates with the help of the very non-Whites who were used against each and every White nation across the globe.

Nobody, regardless of ethnicity, will countenance the presence of traitors amongst them after having been made FULLY aware of the extent of their treachery.

Unfortunately, we currently lack the ruthlessness and savage retribution desires more prevalent in non-White societies, but hopefully, collectively White nations will once again get in touch with the inner savage found in all of mankind.

Personally, I never lost mine!
