Banning interracial marriage

China is banning interracial marriage:
The Supreme People’s Court of China today passed legislation that will ban Chinese women from marrying non-Chinese men, with the law coming into effect at the beginning of 2018. The policy had been fiercely debated for a number of months before it finally won approval from the required number of legislators earlier today. Civil rights groups in China have condemned the restriction, pointing out that it discriminates against women by still permitting males to enter into interracial marriages.

“We strongly urge the People’s Court to reconsider this new law, and repeal the legislation before it comes into force.” A small group of protesters staged a rally outside the courthouse in central Beijing today, but were soon dispersed by authorities. Following decades of the one-child policy, China is now faced with a shocking gender imbalance – for every girl below the age of 18 in China, there are now three boys. “The law was introduced in order to promote social harmony,” commented one of the People’s Courts legislators. “We need to ensure there are enough Chinese women available for marriage; otherwise there is a high probability of increased levels of rape and other violence.” One of the more controversial aspects of the new law is the fact that Chinese men are not banned from marrying women of other races. “Because we have such a shortage of women in China, we need to make sure Chinese men have as many opportunities as possible to find a bride.”
See also Muhammad Ali on interracial marriage and couples. Ali is hilarious, white the white liberal is stunning into babbling nonsense.

The academic research on interracial couples is pretty horrifying, especially for white women.

If you think academic research might be biased, check out this Retraction Watch notice:
Researchers have fixed a number of papers after mistakenly reporting that people who hold conservative political beliefs are more likely to exhibit traits associated with psychoticism, such as authoritarianism and tough-mindedness.

As one of the notices specifies, now it appears that liberal political beliefs are linked with psychoticism. That paper also swapped ideologies when reporting on people higher in neuroticism and social desirability (falsely claiming that you have socially desirable qualities); the original paper said those traits are linked with liberal beliefs, but they are more common among people with conservative values.
Got that? The papers said that conservatives are high in psychoticism and liberals are high in social desirability, while the data said the opposite.

Liberals love to pat themselves on the back but libertarians have the highest IQs. Hawking and Tao might hate Trump (you previously forgot to mention Sununu) but look at the political polls taken of the triple nine society. Smart people are largely libertarian and conservative on issues like gun rights. Being an academic doesn't make someone smart but more like a person that failed in real life. Apparently, they can't even write papers.

One of my friends married a Chinese woman last year. I wonder if she knew about this and pushed a bit harder on the marriage date? It is an interesting proposal because it allows Chinese men to spread their seed, but also keeps the core Chinese a race because of prohibitions on women. A policy that comes across somewhat similar to Jewish behaviors. Perhaps the Chinese are looking to expand their influence through breeding over the coming century? Though, I do not know many white or black women that find Chinese men attractive. Generally in my travels out in Asia, discussions on race leave me quite clear that Asian women find White men more attractive than men from their own race, but the supply of white men is limited, though had been growing as feminism in the West grew. Young Chinese women will be devastated because they just love White men, especially ones with blue eyes.

On Ali, I am old enough to remember the Parkinson interview. It was not controversial at the time. My Grandfather said "Just right" to what Ali said as I recall. It is amazing how in all the praise for Ali after his death that so many left leaning people into sports seemed utterly oblivious to Ali's views on race. He even gave a speech at a Ku Klux Klan rally. Yet even to them he was the greatest. They must have great abilities to filter out uncomfortable facts.

Generally though, I quite like Asians as a whole. One can do business with them, and generally as immigrants they are the least likely to fall foul of the law. It is the Jews and Muslims that are the real trouble in the West.

Ali was not a sociologist, he was an athlete and one who's brain was damaged from being hit in the head so many times. He holds one person's opinion and it's not even one expert's opinion. Ali was married four times. Obviously, he didn't have a good understanding of who people should and shouldn't marry.

BTW, that story on China is a fake.
