(A)"Moreover, the differences between human races worldwide are thought to be coded by only 0.1% of the human genome. This means that molecular genetics has demonstrated that there are no significant differences among the various human races."
"So why go back to Europe?"
"Believe me, I don't want to go. In 1916, I couldn't imagine anything more exciting than to have your ship attacked by a U-Boat and write your last dispatch and stuff it in a bottle while you were drowning, knowing that an editor from the New York Herald would inevitably find it and put it on the front page."
"Now I know that it will be hard to find hot water for a nice bath, and there will be a constant stream of people in every city who will deserve to eat more than I deserve a new hat, and that friends from long ago who were once truly simpatico will now be disgorging the most impossible sentiments about Anglo-Saxon purity or the rights of Italians to a 'mare italiano' or whatever they call it."
(C) "Through a window, they watched Korean women cut the toenails of Japanese women. For fun, they operated a vending machine and received a bag of orange food neither would taste.
Gil tried to speak to the Japanese women, but they smiled and ignored him. Then he bought a drink for the bartender She came over and talked with him while she poured it. She was thin shouldered, but her shirt was tight and her hair was absolutely black. They drank together, and he said something to make her laugh. When she went to fill an order, Gil turned to Jun Do, "If you slept with one of these girls," Gil said, "you'd know it was because she wanted to, not like some military comfort girl trying to get nine stamps a day in her quota book or a factory gal getting married off by her housing council. Back home pretty girls never even raise their eyes to you. You can't even have a cup of tea without her father arranging a marriage?"
Pretty girls? Jun Do thought, "The world thinks I am an orphan, that's my curse."
"In this whole stupid country" Jun Do said, "the only thing that made sense to me were the Korean ladies on their knees cleaning the feet of the Japanese."
(D) "Politically the Klan was quite strong, electing mayors in Flint in 1924 and Detroit in 1929, as well as many state legislators. In Detroit one of the reasons for the success of Klan candidates was that Jewish voters stayed home rather than choose between a Klan candidate or a candidate backed by Henry Ford, one of the country's leading anti-Semites. Ford openly blamed Jews for making obscene movies, bootlegging, and spreading immorality through their music, especially songs written by Irving Berlin."
The careers of my paternal grandfather and my great-grandfather as high-ranking appointees for the city government spanned most of the 20th century. The following was once written about my great-grandfather.
"He has the recommendation of everybody who knows him, for the reason that you cannot leave his presence without placing him in your highest esteem as a gentleman and a scholar."
The summer after my divorce (2007), I dated a very artistically multi-talented black man who collaborated with some Jewish men in the 1990s to produce a critically acclaimed album of music with an overtly sexual title in the Detroit garage rock scene. He was very lucky, that the contingency that is very important in all life (See reference A), resulted in being raised in a very low income, single mother household right next to the boundary of an Orthodox Jewish ghetto.
There are individual men who are inherently gentle through and through. Gomer Pyle, for instance. Truly gentle men are to be found as rarity in every human social grouping. There are also men who are gentlemen. It seems to me that some people have recently become confused about this.brute believes 7Wannabe5's point is that all human males are thugs. so it's probably more sexist than racist.
I prefer to describe my current perspective on the male/female divide as "post-feminist." However, I can't decide whether circumstances are such that it is not yet safe to be post-feminist or circumstances are such that it is already too far gone not to be post-feminist. Due to the unfortunate fact that my dear crazy Bohemian artist sister recently found herself incarcerated in the prison system of Detroit for 5 days, I can verify that even the worst of environments inhabited by only females are less "thuggish" than, for instance, the private prep school for the sons of wealthy families that my Persian-ex attended in the pre-revolution Tehran of his youth.
