Martin Sewell is the faculty supervisor of the Economics department at the prestigious Cambridge University in the UK. The British press is going bonkers after he spoke his mind about racism and feminism. The left-wing is demanding that he be fired from the University to silence him.
“So-called racism is a perfectly natural in-group bias which has been stigmatized by the politically correct West. The most likely reason for the high incidence of black crime is blacks’ lower intelligence and greater impulsivity, which themselves are probably biological in origin.”
“Feminism not only harms men, but harms women. Indeed, women are less happy today than they
were in the 1970s.”
“To assume equality is false, whilst attempting to enforce it is totalitarian.”
“Men must work hard, compete and take risks throughout their lives if they want any life at all, whilst women need only to look youthful and behave selfishly.”
Meanwhile the extreme left-wing is coming unhinged over new studies that “racism” is biological and hardwired into the human brain. The UK Daily Mail lamented that “right-thinking” and “egalitarian” people are probably secretly “racist” and don’t even know it. Note that this article by the UK Daily is full of political editorializing, but it is presented as a “news story.”
Racism is hardwired into the brain, say scientists – and it operates unconsciously.
The same circuits in the brain that allow us to see which ethnic group a person belongs to overlap with others that drive emotional decisions.
The result is that even right-thinking individuals make unconscious decisions based on a person’s race.
Brain scans have proved that interactions with people of other ethnic backgrounds set off reactions that may be completely unknown to our conscious selves.
The finding may force researchers to think about racism in entirely new ways.
It’s possible, the researchers say, that even right-thinking, ‘egalitarian’ people could harbour racist attitudes without knowing.
The chemicals involved in perceiving ethnic backgrounds overlap with those for processing emotion and making decisions, according to new research.
