Scott Roberts with a bullhorn and a message to gatherings of implicit Whites (starting 45:15)
The particular evidence that she cites being studies that show that people are less empathetic to other races.
She suggest that while it is hard to control unconscious responses, conscious efforts to combat bias and increased interaction with other ”races” could help our brains see that our brains are “99.99% the same.”
These conclusions by this recent economics and telecommunications graduate from The University of Florida reveal her institutional conditioning.
Despite the fact that everybody perceives racial categories, even on levels of pre-conscious brain function, these categories “don’t exist!”
Here are the scientific premises she takes:
1) Race as a category is perceived in neurological responses of the older parts of the brain but 2) can be rejected as categorizations on a conscious level through neural re-routing in newer parts of the brain.
These are the same premises that Dr. MacDonald takes in his classic article, “White Ethnocentrism - Can Americans Really Be Brainwashed?”
However, MacDonald renders diametrically opposite inferences and prescription.
- that racial categories are perceived pre-consciously in older parts of the brain and therefore do exist.
- that racial categories can be consciously denied through conditioning of the newer parts of the brain and therefore that is cause for concern (because it means that Whites can be brainwashed).
- hope of defending against brainwashing through conditioning of newer parts of the brain might be found in the process of making conscious assertion of identification with heretofore implicit White groups - as Scott Roberts is doing by making explicit pro White statements before groups of Trump supporters, who are an implicit White identity.
This kind of thing should be done to counteract the reverse position, the kind of brainwashing that this being promulgated through the University of Florida:
- racial categories are perceived by everyone, even on an unconscious level - therefore do not exist?
- racial categories can be denied by the newer parts of the brain, therefore that is cause for encouragement - [!??] that we might throw-off accountability to the wisdom of our human ecology and systemic history?
- racial categorization might be overcome ultimately through increased mixing with other ” ” races” ” as it will compel people to overcome their implicit identities - [!??] i.e., their precious, ancient evolution survived through a myriad of struggles and adaptations?
