Watching the BBC these days, do you ever get the impression its schedulers completely hate their own viewers? Perhaps they only detest those who were born white, at least to judge by the ever-so-slightly intemperate online comments of one Dawn Queva, a senior scheduler at BBC Three, who, as the Daily Sceptic recently reported, was sacked earlier this month after making a series of social media posts calling white people a “virus”, a “mutant invader species”, “melanin-recessive parasites” and a “barbaric bloodthirsty rapacious murderous genocidal thieving parasitical deviant breed”. She doesn’t seem to much like Jews, either.
Reading these statements, most people will probably have thought, “Clearly she’s just been on a DEI course.” The natural thought is that Red Dawn is merely some typical, ranting, anti-white far-Left bigot of precisely the kind the BBC now apparently goes out of its way to hire, and that her language is simply a reflection of her bitter political views. Yet there may be rather more to the matter.
I have no personal knowledge of where precisely Queva picked up her distasteful lingo about whitey being “melanin-recessive parasites”, but possibly she has been reading my recent new book Hitler’s & Stalin’s Misuse of Science: When Science Fiction Was Turned Into Science Fact by the Nazis and the Soviets (previous extracts in the Daily Sceptic here and here) which traces precisely where such lines of racist abuse ultimately came from… outer-space!
Martian Luther King
The idea of whitey being a genetically inferior species of subhuman mutant originates with a group of largely U.S.-based black activists known as the ‘magic melanin’ school. These people argue that the fact black people have higher levels of the chemical pigment melanin within their skin than other races means blacks are more highly evolved, having an intimate connection to the inky blackness of the cosmos itself.
The deranged U.S. black nationalist cult the Nation of Islam (NoI) has long promulgated a bizarre racial creation myth for humanity which holds that, 76 trillion years ago, a special living atom spontaneously spun out from an all-encompassing space-womb of total cosmic blackness, giving birth to both the physical universe and the equally vital concepts of time and black men simultaneously. This jet-black “atom of life” was named Allah, God Almighty.
Once Atomic Allah was born, He grew amidst the stars like a holy space-foetus, slowly accumulating individual cells which coalesced into organs, flesh, blood and bones over the course of six trillion years. This foetus then became conscious within the form of a truly beautiful human being – a divine black Space-Adam, the father of all later human races, who were originally all black-skinned themselves, children of the voidy vastnesses of space.
In the NoI’s twisted narrative, white people were genetic mutants, created in a laboratory during biblical times by an evil scientist with a giant head named Yakub, and denuded of their natural stores of melanin in order to transform them into pure fiends in (in)human form. As their dark, melanin-infused skin connected black and brown people directly back up to the cosmos itself, and Allah who dwelled within it, for white folk to be stripped of the stuff quite naturally caused them to evolve (or devolve) into innately evil beings, primed to conquer and enslave the helpless, peaceful, melanin-infused black races of the globe – or, to recall Dawn Queva’s terms, to transform them into a “virus”, a “mutant invader species”, “melanin-recessive parasites” and a “barbaric bloodthirsty rapacious murderous genocidal thieving parasitical deviant breed”.
The notion black people have an inherent connection to interstellar darkness is about as plausible as saying white people evolved from Tipp-Ex or that the Chinese were born from custard, but has enjoyed a surprising degree of active promotion by oh-so-woke official channels in Western academia. It has even been taught in actual Western schools. In 1987 a truly laughable document was distributed to schools across the US. Known as ‘African and African-American Contributions to Science and Technology‘, it was part of a scheme developed by the schools district of Portland, Oregon, with the aim of improving the academic achievement of black pupils by teaching them pure anti-white insanity.
According to this laughable document – and hence, later, some actual school history and science lessons – the ancient Egyptians were all sub-Saharan black men, not brownish skinned individuals like Mo Salah is today, who exploited their innate levels of skin-melanin to connect with the universe and invent the world’s first ever aeroplanes (not those pathetic actual pioneers of white-flight, the Wright Brothers). These planes, by the way, had no engines, but were instead launched into the wide blue yonder via catapult, from the top of pyramids. Say otherwise in an affected school’s internal exam papers, and you’d fail.
The document’s authors may have encountered some of these ideas through the work of a notorious lunatic black racial shit-stirrer posing as a reputable psychologist named Frances Cress Welsing (1936-2016), who in later life was able to exploit the over-sensitive ethnic politics of our time to carve a name for herself as a supposedly serious figure within the U.S. Civil Rights movement. After her death in January 2016, an obituary and series of laudatory essays describing her work appeared on the website of Britain’s Black History Month (BHM) organisation. According to the BHM website, Welsing was the “woman who redefined the discussion around racism”.
She certainly did that alright, largely by promoting a hilarious (and highly racist) pseudo-psychological hypothesis called the ‘Cress Theory of Colour Confrontation’. Welsing’s ideas are a mentally disturbed black racist version of Sigmund Freud, making the ludicrous claim that Western society is based entirely upon white men’s secret fear of black men’s allegedly massive genitals and white women’s secret desire to possess them, something which would ultimately lead to the wholesale final extinction of the white race via interbreeding.
Western civilisation is full of symbolic representations of this looming genital terror, said Welsing, as could be discerned in the desire of many elderly retired white males to whack miniature white golf-balls around in subconscious self-disgust about how their testicles were so much smaller than those of their well-swelled young black counterparts. Snooker and pool were also inherently racist, as they involved repeatedly striking lots of coloured balls with a white one, as a compensatory testicular measure – in snooker, you win when you pot the black, banishing it temporarily into the prison of the corner-pocket. Even when white people ate brown chocolate bars, this was really a sublimated expression of their desire to suck on big black penises, or else symbolic of their desire to bite them off and castrate them. Certainly casts new light on the old Cadbury’s Flake adverts.
Equally incorrect were Welsing’s insane notions about melanin, which she felt was secretly some kind of neurotransmitter, a claim laughably described by the British Black History Month website (on a page since deleted) as being “plausible”, adding that “any critique of her work” was made “from a Eurocentric viewpoint” – so, if you disagree, you’re racist.
According to a Telegraph investigation, the BHM site also featured material about white people being “genetically defective descendants of albino mutants”, a phrase with direct echoes of the language later used by Dawn Queva. The site’s owner, alerted by the Telegraph, disowned such content, but here’s hoping these single-issue freaks do somehow manage to get Ms. Welsing onto Britain’s National Curriculum alongside their beloved St. Mary Seacole one day, as the magic melanin crowd once did over in America. At last, the country’s bored schoolkids would be taught about something they would actually find interesting for once. I certainly think there’s a real chance it might end up being taught in Pimlico Academy some day soon.
The Ice-Man Cometh
Militant black people are not the only ones who believe such stuff – some self-hating white folk do too, possibly on account of them possessing so little melanin inside their brains that the deficit has made them go loopy. The chief exhibit here is a crank 1978 book, The Iceman Inheritance, by Canadian-American writer Michael Bradley (1944-2017), who repeatedly identifies himself as a white man within the text itself, in a spirit of abject apology. Bradley openly admits in his very first sentence that “this book is racist”. However, as he then explains that “the problem with the world is white men”, Bradley’s book is racist against whites, not blacks, so this is okay.
The book’s basic message is that white men, much as BLM preaches today, are responsible for all the world’s ills – racism, genocide, pollution, rape, sexism, war, violence and, of course, climate change. It is just that, this book being written during the 1970s, when alarmist scientists were predicting an imminent return to a new Ice Age, global cooling is the looming disaster being caused by whitey worldwide, not global warming. Pollution from white men’s factories and cities (black people possess no such things, of course) creates “atmospheric dust” in the sky, which reflects sunlight back away into space, lowering temperatures and causing expansion of the world’s glaciers, leading to the same global holocaust of famine, death and disaster Little Green Greta promises us all today, but for diametrically opposed reasons.
Bradley appears to be a polygenist, a now-discredited school of thought that holds each main race on Earth evolved from a separate species of ape, with blacks coming from gorillas in Africa and Orientals growing from orangutans in Asia and so forth. Uniquely, he says, whites evolved into fully-fledged, non-ape humans in northern Europe and the Caucasus Mountains during the unforgiving conditions of the last Ice Age, which genetically affected their innate characteristics of biology and character to help them cope with the snow, frost and scarcity of food. Shedding their sunburn-protecting melanin as an unnecessary hindrance amidst the frost and snow, white men were born in a never-ending struggle against the killer ice.
To survive such an unpromising environment, white Europeans evolved to be more aggressive, competitive and war-like than other races living elsewhere, where temperatures were higher and resources more abundant, leading to the development of less murderous Communist-type societies based on cooperation not competition. But then the glaciers melted at the end of the Ice Age, allowing the ice-hardened white colonisers to spread out across the rest of the world and subdue its helpless pacifist brown Commie coconut-eaters by force, using the superior technology they had already developed to kill one another back in Europe.
Yet white success would also be their downfall; their industrial and military domination of the planet was now destroying it, meaning that, in our “resource-raped” world, melanin-deprived “Caucasoids have become biologically inferior to other kinds of men, given our present environment”, so they should sit back and let other, more peaceful and less greedy people take over stewardship of the globe instead. People like Dawn Queva, presumably.
In places, Bradley’s book becomes amusingly obscene. Being born amidst Pleistocene ice had sowed “a higher level of psychosexual conflict” amongst whites, he says. Many blacks inhabited climes so warm they could parade around semi-naked with less pubic hair, thus facilitating the evolution of far more sensitive genitalia. Today’s African Bushmen apparently possess “a continually semi-erect penis”, he alleges, whilst bushless Bushwomen have greatly enlarged labias, known to connoisseurs of pigmented foreign genitalia as the ‘Hottentot Apron’. In general “Negroids have large sex organs” unlike frost-withered whites, explains Bradley, thus proving that “this book is racist” after all, just as he promised at the start.
This Valentine’s Day, it is worth noting that, for Bradley, sex is nature’s chosen way of dissipating aggression amongst primates: make love, not war! After they fight, monkeys often make amends by immediately mounting one another, as in Sunderland on a Saturday night. Baboon-intercourse lasts “for about five seconds”, whereas human sex “requires some minutes”, at least if you’re doing it right, thus demonstrating our species’ potential for ultra-violence is much greater than that of our ape-cousins – there was no monkey-Vietnam, after all.
But low temperatures in Ice Age Europe made early white men’s penises shrivel back into their protective pubic nests, rendering it more difficult for them to kiss and make-up following scraps, unlike loved-up Bushmen. Penile frostbite is a serious matter, so early white men and the Neanderthals they were born from “could not sport vulnerable extremities: no larger penises for them, no Hottentot Aprons”.
However, “nature did what it could” and white women developed big fat breasts and wide hips as compensation, such sexy fatty deposits helping keep them hot in both senses of the term. Yetis were just surviving remnant-populations of white mutants’ immediate Missing Link ancestors, massive hairy breasts and all. Thus, amongst whites, sexual dimorphism – the visible difference between males and females – evolved to be more pronounced than amongst other races, with hairy males viewing large-breasted, wide-hipped females almost as a different species, rendering it harder to empathise with them as being their fellow human beings, thus causing the still-unresolved war between the sexes and the invention of rape, a crime which I suppose no black man can ever therefore have committed, not even Bill Cosby.
Heightened sensitivity to sexual dimorphism also led to heightened awareness of dimorphism between the races, subjectively justifying white supremacism and the subsequent colonial subjugation of all ‘lesser breeds’ of mankind by sexually maladjusted Europeans with tiny balls. All these factors combined led to the development of selfish individualism amongst early whites, causing the later birth of polluting Western free-market capitalist modes of industrial production. Not content with raping their women, the white patriarchy now sought to rape Mother Earth to death too.
Only He Nose the Answer
So what was the solution? Bradley’s favourite play is Cyrano de Bergerac, at the end of which the titular Cyrano is forced to recognise his shameful denial of the simple biological fact of his abnormally massive nose has caused all his problems in life. Likewise, white people must recognise their hitherto-denied status as evil Ice-People by looking “straight in the mirror” and openly acknowledging the horror of what will then stare right back at them – not only their fundamental, frost-born inhumanity, but also their tiny evil penises, Cyrano’s giant hooter in reverse.
Or, to put it another way, white people have to come together as one and acknowledge their collective white guilt, a notion which would have been exceedingly fringe at time of Bradley’s book’s first publication in 1978, but has since gone mainstream in the wake of malign black Marxist mobs like BLM. When the political climate becomes ripe for fringe sects to take power, in areas like, say, politics, academia or the scheduling department of BBC Three, they often drag their friendly fringe pseudoscientists along with them too.
I do wish to emphasise that I have no idea whatsoever whether or not Dawn Queva is specifically aware of any of the theorists or ideas detailed above. Yet the fact remains that her peculiar brand of unhinged rhetoric seems likely ultimately to have been drawn from these people’s work – although whether she genuinely understands what they mean, or if she just heard them online somewhere and ignorantly thought “They sound like good insults!” is a matter known only to her. Possibly she has never read any books by Frances Cress Welsing or Michael Bradley in her entire adult life. Possibly she has never read any books at all in her entire adult life. But ideas, wherever they were first written down, have a distinct habit of later escaping from the page away into the outside world and developing an independent life all of their own.
But then, what do I know? I’m just a big bad white albino mutant, after all.
