So friggin pumped about the issues of Cooks Illustrated my grandmother realized she had lying around and gave to me. Milk-braised pork loin! Roasted artichokes! A systematic, scientific-ish comparison of cocoa powder by brand! (Hershey’s wins out, which is good because it’s also one of the cheapest/most widely-available ones they looked at.) :D :D

Today it is super hot, but I have an interview for an internship. Also I want to cover up a lot so I don’t have to slather huge areas of my body with sunscreen. So … professional but light and breathable but covering as much skin as possible is my clothing goal for today. Ulp.

"A racist society will give you a racist science."

R. M. Young (1987). Racist society, racist science. In D. Gill & L. Levidow (Eds.) Anti-racist science teaching(pp. 16-42). London: Free Association Books. (via homoarigato)

Remember that time when they made up a disease for black ppl when we didnt wanna be stuck as slaves?

Remember when they operated on black women with no anesthesia to get modern gynecological surgical procedures?

Remember when they sterilized poor woc without consent to keep us from ‘creating more undesirables’?

Remember when the government allowed Black men to go untreated with Syphilis even after a cure was discovered?

Remember when minority heavy areas in cities were sprayed with radioactive material to ‘test’ how America could handle a nuclear fallout?

Oh, you dont? Because I do…

Go look it up. Every single one was done by a white supremacist nation called America.

FOR SCIENCE!

Don’t forget that in 1975 about 35% of Puerto Rican Women were sterilized without their consent by the US government

1. A Troublesome Inheritance: Genes, Race and Human History by Nicholas Wade (Published 2014)

"Right now, it’s undeniable that Wade’s work is the most influential work of scientific racism circulating today. His argument is that racial groups have genetic predispositions to certain kinds of mental skills, some of which evolved only over the past few hundred years. As a result, some races are more creative or intelligent than others. The Chinese, he argues, are more prone to obedience, while people from tribal societies in Africa are impulsive and quick to consume everything they have. Meanwhile, Europeans are good at becoming prosperous due to their thoughtful, forward-thinking natures.

2. The Bell Curve: Intelligence and Class Structure in American Life, by Richard Herrnstein and Charles Murray (Published 1994)

"In this incredibly influential work of economics and sociology, researchers Herrnstein and Murray argue that class differences between whites and blacks in America can be traced back to differences in IQ. Blacks, they write, are simply not as intelligent as whites (and, to a certain extent, Asians — though mostly they’re talking just about blacks and whites). Because many studies show that IQ is a very strong indicator of economic success, they believe that IQ differences are at the root of racial differences. They use "scientific" data about IQ scores to dismiss the idea that political inequalities and the history of slavery in the U.S. are causes of racial inequality."

3.  “Why Are Black Women Less Physically Attractive Than Other Women?” By: Satoshi Kanazawa (Published 2011)

"Dr Kanazawa, a lecturer at the London School of Economics, has published findings based on a survey of white, Asian, black and native American men and women who were asked to rate each other’s attractiveness based on photographs.

Nor does he explore the fact that the research on which he bases his conclusion was conducted in America where European ideals of beauty dominate.”

***Satoshi Kanazawa has been the only recipient on this list dismissed for his work, could it be because he is an Asian man?***

In response to ongoing controversy over views such as that African countries suffer chronic poverty and illness because their people have lower IQs and that black women are “objectively less attractive” than other races, he was dismissed from writing for Psychology Today.
