Nationalism and the Biracial

Post by sytar on Wed Nov 07, 2012 11:42 am

I see a lot of advocacy here for racial homogenization and a complete discounting of mixed breeds because "miscegenation only occurs on the fringes of society" according to "the statistics". I can appreciate the virtues of racial homogeneity; I see racial heterogeneity and the resulting racism as underpinning the current political problems of the United States. While I think Social Democracy (in addition to anarcho-syndicalism and parecon - I haven't picked sides yet) is a viable system, I don't think it's viable in societies that are racially heterogenous.

However, since I'm a mixed breed person that doesn't quite fit in any racial category, what is to become of me? It's hard to get behind an ideology that seems to not account for me.

First of all, I will caution you not to make such generalizations about this forum. The opinions of certain members — especially those who are under restriction — are in no way reflective of the principles that constitute the foundation of this forum.

Left-wing nationalism is not premised on "racial homogenization". If you're truly interested in left-wing nationalism, I invited you to view the numerous threads that [specifically] pertain to that issue.

Since you joined, you have made a point of resurrecting some of this forum's oldest threads in which the issue of race is addressed (usually, in a superficial capacity). Meanwhile, you have ignored virtually every [contemporary thread] in which the issue of left-nationalism and its relationship to the question of race is addressed.

I can appreciate the virtues of racial homogeneity;

I see no virtue in such an arrangement. I am entirely indifferent to the very notion.

I see racial heterogeneity and the resulting racism as underpinning the current political problems of the United States. While I think Social Democracy (in addition to anarcho-syndicalism and parecon - I haven't picked sides yet) is a viable system, I don't think it's viable in societies that are racially heterogenous.


There is no reason to assume that a socialist society that has established a framework for such things as national personal autonomy and the free political secession of nations will experience the sorts of social conflicts observed in contemporary capitalist states. First of all, the material conditions that serve to incite such conflicts will largely cease to exist. Secondly, the very existence of policies based upon left-wing national principles will ensure that both national and cosmopolitan social arrangements will maintain an adequate level of social cohesion.

However, since I'm a mixed breed person that doesn't quite fit in any racial category, what is to become of me? It's hard to get behind an ideology that seems to not account for me.

That is pure nonsense. As I said before, "racial homogeneity" has absolutely nothing to do with left-wing nationalism.
