It is clear from his posts that he believes himself to be superior to them. There is no place for such views in a movement based on class that seeks the emancipation of that class without distinction of race or sex.

It's been half a century since the US supreme court decriminalized interracial marriage.Since then, the share of interracial and interethnic marriages in America has increased fivefold, from 3% of all weddings in 1967 to 17% in 2015. It’s more common in metropolitan areas than rural places (18% compared to 11%) US metropolitan areas vary significantly from Honolulu, Hawaii, where 42% of weddings are interracial to Jackson, Mississippi where the figure is just 3%.The most common type of intermarriage is between a partner who is white and one who is Hispanic of any race – those relationships accounted for 38% of all intermarriages in 2010. White-Asian couples accounted for another 14% of intermarriages, and white-black couples made up 8%. the most common type of intermarriage is between a partner who is white and one who is Hispanic of any race – those relationships accounted for 38% of all intermarriages in 2010.

It is ironic that there are many supporters of Donald Trump's nationalism who are living in Mexico because their pension is not enough to afford the high cost of living in the USA. There are thousands US citizens who are undocumented in Mexico, they just cross the border and they stay thereFebruary 27, 2018 at 5:34 am #131864

A lengthy article that attacks the basis of Ike Pettigrew's claims of scientific validity for his racism.https://www.theguardian.com/news/2018/mar/02/the-unwelcome-revival-of-race-scienceQuote:Race science is bad science.

Well, my contribution to this discussion is going to seem both hackneyed and cliched and I beg everyone's pardon but here goes. I think that scots and sassenachs, jews and jamaicans, indians and irish, africans and albanians, poles and pakistanis (and not forgetting the chinese) should all unite together! – and get the welsh.March 2, 2018 at 11:12 pm #131867adminKeymaster
It is not only hackneyed and cliched but trivialisation of a serious subject. You do yourself and us a disservice by this feeble puerile attempt at humour.March 13, 2018 at 10:16 pm #131868Quote:“What the genetics shows is that mixture and displacement have happened again and again and that our pictures of past ‘racial structures’ are almost always wrong,” says David Reich, a Harvard University paleogeneticist whose new book on the subject is called Who We Are and How We Got Here. There are no fixed traits associated with specific geographic locations, Reich says, because as often as isolation has created differences among populations, migration and mixing have blurred or erased them.

Another interesting article on race and immigration myths from history attacking Ike's favourite source – the supposed anglo-saxon roots of England.https://www.alternet.org/ancient-skeletons-annihilate-right-wing-talking-point
