No I don't equate the two, other than isn't Malcolm X FOR Freedom? So is Rush. My point is you quote your favorite sources so why the hell can't I quote mine.

And I've only used one Rush quote.

Your opinion that Darwainism "made racism worse" and the implicit idea that since it has been supposedly discredited then everything is better now is seeing life through rose colored glasses. Like I said, that theory was just one of many attempts to justify and not necessarily to solidify racism. Racism has been and would have been rock solid with or without it...

But I'll let you think that it really changes things...

Well then, have you any OTHER explanation why racism against blacks SEEMS to be worse than against most other minorities, if not because some people seemed to think that the "African race" was the LEAST evolved and thus the LEAST human, according to the dumbasses who called themselves "scientists" of the day? Of course racism would have been rock solid without it, however what you are FAILING to take into account is that the "science" of the day (Darwinism) gave an aura of respectability to the viewpoint that it otherwise might not have had. It's one thing to just suspect that other 'races' are inferior; it is quite another when someone offers believable (at the time) evidence that the suspicions are correct.

I just finished saying in an earlier post that the discrediting of the theory did NOT make everything better. Among the lesser-educated, who ate that crap up with a spoon because they didn't know any better, the idea STUCK. That is why there still are white supremacist motherf****ers referring to "the mud people." (that is, if "LAW AND ORDER" is any indication...) They believe the others are not human because they believe whites are "more evolved"--the fallacy never got exposed with that crowd. Or they steadfastly cling to it for reasons known or yet unknown. Probably because they are MENTALLY UNBALANCED.

"The Bell Curve" was an extremely flawed work.

Dude you don't seem to understand that people have a hard time dissenting with the science of the time. Since in that era, "science" was basically trumping religion in many people's minds as THE ABSOLUTE TRUTH, people would hesitate (and still do, witness the people on the sidelines of the evolution/creation debate) to question the scientific theories of the day. Scientists have a measure of respect granted to them that most other people don't have. People believed it because "Science" told them so, and to question the determinations of science in some areas was to open the door to endless ridicule and criticism. Thus, when "scientists" made the determination about the evolutionary status of different races, few challenged their ideas--mainly because if a scientist said it, it HAD to be 'true.'

Some people have a remnant of that opinion remaining, mainly because to them, adding to the mix their insecurities or their personal experiences, it was still true in their minds and they refused to believe that the reversal of the opinion was legitimate.
