No, instead of committing sepukku or harakiri as behooves a honorable ronin, Prof. Satoshi Kanazawa has recanted. Like a honorless peasant. Having been disgraced and defrocked by the bien-penseé for insinuating that African girls are less attractive than blondes, a fact of life that any porn entrepreneur will confirm, Kanazawa lost his nerve and writes a shameful "mea-culpa, mea-grandissima-culpa" in the Economist.
He tries to pacify the angry beasts by saying that intelligence (aka the very thing that the beasts lack) is not so important, in fact, it is unnecessary and even harmful. "Actually, less intelligent people are better at doing most things. In the ancestral environment general intelligence was helpful only for solving a handful of evolutionarily novel problems." The IQ-less beasts - he says - are better at everything, they are more relaxed and self-assured, and (remember the Black female disaster) they are infinitely more beautiful and natural. Only they know how to make friends, conquer a girl and be good parents.
"More intelligent people are more likely to be left-wing liberals" - and we all know that left-wing liberals are all vegetarians and sexual perverts. Let me quote him: "They are more likely to be homosexual, because humans are evolutionarily designed to reproduce heterosexually." One wonders if they are human at all. They are certainly not normal.
"My point is that ... that more intelligent people consume more alcohol more frequently." Not only alcohol he reminds us, but all evolutionarily novel addictives like tobacco and psychodelic drugs. At this point one wonders why intelligent people is allowed to walk on the streets, endangering innocent normal children.
When Kanazawa dared to deny that "Black is Beautiful", I liked his manly frankness, his standing up in front of the world and saying what he saw as a professional psychologist. It was a very un-Japanese thing to do. And I appreciated him the more for it. But now it is time to end this embarrasing spectacle of self-abasement, this shameful recantation, and do the honorable thing, the Japanese thing. He knows what.
