Tiger Woods, A Beta Among Alphas

Posted by PlanetGrok on April 5, 2010

One picture says a thousand words:

Jordan – cigar chomping alpha with swagger, hat sloppily backwards, not giving a shit.

Woods – slumping beta with perfectly worn hat trying to escape his Asian betatude by hanging out with black NBA stars and sleeping with lots of women like they do.

Tiger probably gets his betaness from his Asian side, the side that gave him his other mental traits, such as good golf-playing ability.  Unfortunately it also makes him much like a nerdy Asian beta. An Asian beta with a tan and money, but an Asian beta nonetheless. If Woods had no golf-playing ability, he would probably lead a life much like David Alexander’s. He knows he is beta, so he tries to compensate by hanging around alphas like Michael Jordan and Charles Barkley.

Tiger’s innate betaness is revealed not only by his slouch, and his pensive, nasal speech, but his text messages to his mistresses. In this exchange, he constantly worries about whether one of his hoes is seeing sleeping with someone else (of course she is!):

Tiger: alone with him that is

Tiger: now that’s hot so who is your new boy toy

Tiger: do you have a boy friend

Tiger: when was the last time you got laid

Jesus Christ, Tiger, stop giving a shit!

This part was funny:

Jaimee: very true … I only watch football

Tiger: Figured you would say that. Big black guys.

Jaimee: u are my first, last and only black guy! U should feel special

Tiger: why do I not believe that?

I don’t believe that either, Tiger, but your insecurities are showing. Call Jordan up again and have him tell you that you really are black. It will make you feel better. Or learn yo’self some HBD so you can take pride in your Asian side.

I think Tiger got burnt by his mistresses because he gave off too many beta-provider vibes. He told them he cared about them, and he acted jealous. Michael Jordan sure hasn’t had hordes of his mistresses and flings come forward to sell their text messages. This is because he is a natural alpha and they all know he doesn’t give a shit about them.

The Future of America?

Posted by PlanetGrok on March 30, 2010

Commenter Sagat referred me to a suprisingly good show by the History Channel describing what could happen in the US if civilization fell apart due to some pathogenic plague. The show tries to get you to buy into the swine flu / avian flu pharmaceutical scams, but I think any plague on a civilization-ending scale will be bioengineered by terrorists.

Yes, the show had its liberal moments, but overall it reinforces many bio-con talking points.

The protagonist is a hapless beta provider with an annoying cunt of a wife. Over the course of the show, he gets more and more alpha, and his wife responds by becoming more wifely. He never completely crosses the Rubicon into pure alpha territory, but the harsh conditions force him to move up from almost Omega to Greater Beta status.

The really interesting parts, as Sagat noted, were the thinly veiled HBD and WN references by the woven narrative of talking heads and the statements of fictitious characters. L.A. and other urban areas turn into hellholes of rampaging NAMs. References to Katrina abound. The wife pleads with her husband to move to the known WN haven of Idaho, presumably to escape the savagery of the NAMs in LA.  Eventually the family settles in a small, all-white town with a preacher who proudly claims those “recently from the desert” (mexicans) and “those recently from the jungle” (blacks) are being “winnowed out” (dying off, killed off). A revealing scene is also when the family moves into their previously occupied home and notes the previous family’s “interesting taste in crockery” (yes, History Channel, we get the pun) while unpacking. The part where the beta husband actually shows his wife what is printed on the pot is censored, leaving a frustrating gap. It might have been too much for the History Channels large NAM viewership, which they gave a nod to with every “This is not a real emergency” announcement.

This got me thinking, even if there is only a 1-5% chance of this sort of scenario, it would be prudent to have at least the following in one’s possession:

– a gun and ammo

– emergency 60 gallon water bags to fill up before the water is turned off

– gold and cigarettes for bartering

– medical supplies, 3-6 months worth of canned foods, and seeds

-how-to books on gardening, machinery, and other skills.

I think also think the show is right in forecasting an initial post-apocalyptic takeover by NAMs, since most white males are hamstrung by a beta mentality, like that of our pussified paramedic protagonist, and would get their asses beat. Eventually, however, a resounding pushback by whites to the point of ethnic cleansing would occur.

Boy I hope all of this does not happen.

Blacks and Hispanics Protest Accurate Art

Posted by PlanetGrok on March 26, 2010

A bunch of snobby blacks and Hispanics in NYC have been up in arms over Sofia Maldonado’s  murals that accurately depict female denizens of the ghetto (and the new Section 8 suburbs). 
You can view some of her work here:
Leaders and activists representing Hispanic and African-American communities of New York City gathered on 42nd Street in Manhattan on March 17th to demand the removal of a mural installed in the area,  around the corner from Times Square.
The mural, a 92 feet long by 12 feet high acrylic on plywood work by Sofia Maldonado is mounted on a construction site fence between Broadway and 8th Avenue in one of the most visited areas of the city. It depicts a group of Hispanic and African-American women.
In an open letter to the Board of Directors of the Times Square Alliance,. protesters claim the mural “is unacceptable” as it “depicts African American and Hispanic women in a negative light”.
While I commend the black and Hispanic protesters for their superior cultural taste, it doesn’t occur to them, strangely, that a good number of their co-ethnics do a great job of depicting themselves in a negative light. And since all cultures are equal, we should be able to find beauty in all of them!
Sofia responds to the protests, in typical batshit feminist fashion:
 “My artwork intends and aims to represent brave, strong, and tough women who have to overcome struggles in their daily lives and sometimes impose themselves in a male-dominated world. In a post-feminist society these women can own their bodies in a powerful way without being depicted negatively.”
Maldonado wanted her work to “represent a female aesthetic that normally isn’t seen in Times Square. Women who dress like this should be respected in society the same way as women with briefcases.”
I  actually support the reality-based work of Ms. Maldonado, although for slightly different reasons (I assume).  Contrary to her delusional fantasies, the dysfunctional “people” depicted in her art will never be respected on the same level as productive professionals of any race. The more her artwork is promoted, the faster the multicultural bubble will pop.  I say we should plaster these murals all over the country to remind other citizens exactly who their tax dollars are supporting in America’s ever-expanding wealth redistribution scheme.
I’m adding Sofia to my blogroll.

Nature vs Nurture is Stupid

Posted by PlanetGrok on March 24, 2010

It’s rather ridiculous to me how HBD-deniers always trot out cultural explanations as some kind of trump card to nullify any genetic explanation of human group variance. Jews have high IQs because study is so ingrained in their culture, Chinese have high innate visuospatial ability because of their writing system, and blacks are more athletic because…wait, is there ever a culture-only explanation presented for this?  But I digress. The blinders are quite selective, since they are irrational blinders.

Does it not occur to these egalitarians that someone who is genetically dumb would not be reproductively successful in a Jewish population? Cast out to the goyim, he would be. Does it not occur to these people that a Chinese person who had difficulty with literacy due to diminished visuospatial ability would not be as desireable of a mate as his literate peers? Nerdy blacks are socially ostracized while black females gravitate to criminally-inclined men with testosterone overload. Culture is indeed very important. Why? Because it shapes the genes of the population.

Conversely, it should be obvious that the Chinese writing system would never occur in a population with the average qualities of sub-saharan Africans.  Genes shape culture.

The catch is you can modify an individual’s culture, but you can’t change his genes. The traits he either does or does not have will need to be selected for/against by the population at large, due to the culture of the population. Our wars in the middle east and in our ghetto schoolrooms have shown what a losing battle it is to shape a population’s culture. It’s much easier to strike at the root and adopt eugenic policies.

This is all so intuitively obvious that it shouldn’t need to be said. But judging from the comments I’ve read here and elsewhere, it should be.

In other genetic news, there’s a new and improved genetic test for Alzheimer’s.

Sorry, those-who-would-blame-vaccines. Autism is largely genetic. And the reason why it is concentrated heavily in areas like Silicon Valley should be painfully obvious to any of us who know computer geeks.

Planet Grok’s Positive Eugenics Plan for America

Posted by PlanetGrok on March 16, 2010

Today, at this very hour, the United States is facing a severe crisis of genetic proportions, with millions of our low-IQ, unskilled workers and “guests” breeding like rabbits on Viagra, subsidized by free pellets and easy females. Meanwhile, our most able citizens are opting out of the breeding process, putting our country on a course for demographic disaster. It is time for action. Drastic action. Our country needs a genetic bailout. Here is my six-point plan:

1. Close and secure our borders, and deport every illegal alien we can reasonably find.

2. Everyone with an IQ of 90 or below that chooses to get sterilized receives 4 thousand dollars for every point below 90; provided they also pass a lie detector test verifying they didn’t cheat by answering everything wrong.

3. Every married couple with an IQ above 120 gets 10,000 dollars per new verified child for every point above 120, and a 4% reduction in federal income tax for 18 years per new child.  So a married couple with a combined average IQ of 125 who has three kids under my plan would receive federal grants totaling 30,000 and a 12% reduction in federal income tax.

4. I recognize that there are probably more heritable traits that contribute to productive success than just IQ, so anyone with a net worth of over 5 million dollars gets a 5% reduction in capital gains tax per verified child, a 10% reduction of estate tax per verified child, and a 5 % reduction in income tax per verified child, in addition to the grants.

5. Immigration. While most of the so-called immigration we have seen recently has been harmful, it does not have to be this way. High quality immigrants contribute greatly to our country’s success, as our country’s history with Jewish, German, and Asian immigration has shown. I propose opening our country up to more high quality immigrants from non-hostile countries by slashing the red tape and waiting periods, and granting these aspiring immigrants 4,000 dollars for every IQ point above the minimum of 120 to start a new life here in America. In return for this generosity, they will not be allowed to vote or seek public office for 25 years. No new immigrants with an IQ below 120 will be admitted.

6. Slash welfare benefits. Eliminate the EITC and limit the length of time one can spend on any social safety net to 3 years per lifetime, with 1 year being the limit for Medicaid.

Any questions?

So President Grok, how did you come up with your numbers?

I basically pulled them out of my nearest volcano. An IQ of 90 -120 seems to be a reasonable range for “normals”, so no incentives or disincentives there. But if you’d like to take the time to propose better or harsher incentives and disincentives respectively, you’re welcome to do so. Paulson said he chose 700 billion because it sounded like a pretty big number, so I’m being a little more rigorous than my predecessors.

Won’t this cost a lot of money? Could it bankrupt us?

On a nationwide basis I expect it will cost less than the bank bailout and will be a true investment in our genetic future.

Eugenics? Are you a Nazi?

No. My plan is both race and class-blind, and it does not force anything upon any citizen.

Well what about disparate impact?

If intelligence is malleable (wink), then all minorities need to do is hit the books a little bit using the IQ test information that can be downloaded from There will be equal access to all information about our new IQ tests.

It’s a well known fact that on any college campus, there will be groups of SWPLs who profess an undying love of hip-hop. SWPLs take pride in vicariously identifying with the black struggle, so appreciation for a particular black artist or artform is mandatory for social acceptance. For those that choose hip-hop, this produces a conundrum: how can a group of people with relatively high IQ’s really appreciate the music that so well evinces the low IQ of another group?

Answer: they follow the spirit of SWPL rule # 116 and listen to hip hop that actual black people do not listen to, like Mos Def, Little Brother, The Roots or Talib Kweli. Rap artists like these fit the minimum IQ threshold for a white person to listen to without suppressing nausea, but by definition the music these types of artists produce also precludes them from having many actual black fans.

Sometimes SWPLs will make an IQ exception for especially weird hip hop acts like MF Doom, because they equate strangeness with “artsy”.

No rap artist wants to appeal to SWPLs, in part because the more intelligent black artists who make Swip-hop have fantasies about lifting their race up through their music, and are resentful that the only people who show up to their concerts are white. SWPLs are also very trendy and will outgrow their love of this “real hip hop” (which is anything but) shortly after graduating (when they will move on to trendy indie rock bands), therefore there is no sustainable revenue source to be gained from any generation of SWPL fans. It’s a constant treadmill the artists run, trying desperately each year to remain relevant to each incoming class of college freshmen.

There are three target audiences of modern hip hop: The SWPLs, white proles, and black people (white proles and blacks have more cultural overlap than blacks and SWPLs, so distinctions are not as stark here). Of these target audiences, the monetary sweet spot is the white proles. Jay Z and 50 Cent are two artists who have hit the sweet spot of white prole appeal.  The most intelligent hip hop artists are able to make Swip-hop, but recognize the financial folly of doing so, so they lower their standards to suit white proles. Jay Z admits this when he says, in his song “A Moment of Clarity”, “I dumb down for my audience and double my dollars”.

Besides IQ, another large reason SWPLs do not like these successful, “commercial” hip hop acts is solely because they are widely liked by white proles. The standards of white proles are rather low: to be accepted by white proles as a listenable hip hop act, they only have to have a reasonable level of black acceptance and also have their singles appear alongside Britney Spears on top 40 radio stations. In many ways, gaining the acceptance of black hip hop fans is even harder – to do this, a hip hop artist has to compile a lengthy criminal record in order to appear “true to the streets”. Since there is little direct financial benefit in having a black fanbase, who just purchases albums bootleg anyway, many hip hop artists try to skip this crucial step, only realizing their mistake when the white proles reject them for not having enough black acceptance.

There’s only one hip hop act I can think of that appeals to black people, white proles, and SWPLs, and that is Nas. SWPLs like Nas because he is responsible for the quintessential “classic” (SWPLs love anything “classic”) hip hop album “Illmatic” , white proles like Nas because he is on the radio and is also accepted by black people, who like Nas because Nas “keeps it real” and still acts ghetto. Nas’s large black fanbase mean that SWPLs will profess their love for Nas but will never actually go to one of his concerts (unless their college in the boondocks has booked him), because then they will be forced to look down the dark canyon of HBD reality, something they can not stomach.

Lest I forget to post these and thus deprive you all, hat tip to commenter PA on Obsidian’s blog for these awesome Swip-hop videos:

Asian Internet Addiction Really Kills

Posted by PlanetGrok on March 12, 2010

As readers of this blog know, one of the negative traits of East Asians is their propensity to extreme introversion. The average skeptical white American thinks that the Chinese government’s concern with their homeland’s  rampant internet addiction is just an excuse to curb free speech. But there is a good HBD explanation to the Chinese internet addiction problem: East Asians just do not like interacting with real people very much, even when it comes to romance.

This is a serious problem in Asia, where people kill over World of Warcraft.

But the evil of Asian introversion has sunk to a new low:

A South Korean couple addicted to the Internet left their 3-month-old daughter to starve to death while they raised a virtual daughter online during 12-hour bouts at a cyber cafe, police said.

The husband and wife had been on the run since their baby, born prematurely, died five months ago of severe dehydration and malnutrition, police said. They were arrested this week near their home south of the capital Seoul and charged today with child abuse and neglect.

Police say the couple left their infant alone in their apartment and rushed back from the Internet cafe just once a day to feed her. South Korea’s official Yonhap news agency first reported the arrests, quoting police.

WTF, Asians?


Honorable Grokkian and blogger extraordinaire Ferdinand Bardamu points me to another great example of extreme Asian introversion killing someone: A 28 year old Korean man plays video games for 50 hours straight until he dies of exhaustion.

These extreme cases of internet addiction come almost exclusively from East Asian countries, so I’m absolutely certain there’s an HBD explanation here.

Maybe it is a combination of introversion AND lack of creativity? An asian with these traits in extreme might have difficulty enjoying life without the vicarious thrill of existing in a world  made by someone else’s imagination, and little need for social interaction.

The Racial Tallies Are In

Posted by PlanetGrok on March 10, 2010

And here are the results:

East Asians

Strengths: Mathematical ability, diligence, high IQ, nonviolent, lack of BO

Weaknesses: Shy, overly cautious, lacking in fully developed sexual organs.


Strengths:  Charisma, athletic ability, sex organs/ability, music (sometimes)

Weaknesses: Violent, low IQ, low class, resentful


Strengths: Wide range of abilities, from athleticism to intelligence. A non-specialized, jack-of-all trades race. More personality, aggression and assertiveness than Asians, with much higher IQs than blacks. (obviously) The happy median.

Weaknesses: A tendency to self-flagellate, lack of ethnic awareness and solidarity.

South Asians

Strengths: Class conscious, hard-working, family oriented, versatile, rich culture

Weaknesses: Putrid B.O., shyness, weak, effeminate men.

Native American Hispanics

Strengths: ?

Weaknesses: Low IQ, violent gangs, Asian-like bodies, fecundity

Well, it looks like someone got the short end of the stick…Mainstream politicians must be better at all this HBD stuff than me, because I can’t see any strengths there.


OT P.S. – For those who haven’t been checking, The Asian of Reason has been posting blog gold lately.

Mr. Kurtz Syndrome

Posted by PlanetGrok on March 9, 2010

One of the mandatory reading assignments high-school students used to be assigned before the age of political correctness was Joseph Conrad’s Heart of Darkness. This haunting novel features as its antagonist a complex, gifted man -Mr. Kurtz- who has “gone native” in the African Congo. He is an ivory trader who is also revered as a god by the native population, whom he terrorizes and rules with an iron fist.

Mr. Kurtz was not always such a bad guy, however. He traveled to Africa with what passed for noble intentions in those days – he was a true believer that exploitative trade with undeveloped natives would bring civilization and enlightenment to them. However, the more he lived with the natives, the more he realized that the natives were actually fundamentally different than him. This jarring collision with reality resulted in a mental breakdown, and on top of his previous liberal writings he scrawled scornful rants, most notably “Exterminate all the brutes!”

While there are obviously racial HBD themes that the book raises, the case of Mr. Kurtz has a broader reach. In the world we live in today, the importance of IQ is downplayed. Employers are not allowed to give IQ tests, and college degrees have become so ubiquitous that they are no longer an accurate measure of having crossed an important IQ threshold. The result of this IQ-denialism is that many more high IQ people are slipping through the cracks, falling into low-paying careers in industries where they often have coworkers and bosses who are much dumber than they are. Many of these higher IQ people were raised to believe that intelligence can’t be measured accurately, that their own scholastic success was mostly a function of personal diligence and effort. Insulated in their childhood with other intelligent children, these lies are easy to accept. But later on in life, when the system fails them, or in tough economic times when they are forced to get a McJob with Bubba O’Malley and crew, their little utopia can come crashing down. Hard. When this happens, they often develop what I call “Mr. Kurtz syndrome”.

The modern Mr. Kurtz is characterized by a misanthropic, disgusted disdain for any groups of people not deemed fit. Those afflicted will tend to retreat into their own worlds, and cut off or alienate friends with their rantings. This attitude comes about when, due to a significant IQ gap, one is unable to connect with a strong majority of people one encounters in daily living. It is just very difficult to connect to, and thus empathize with, people who are 20 points or more behind you in IQ.  Intelligence is the defining feature of humanity, and when one is forced to coexist with those who are significantly less intelligent, it is easy to see them as less human also.

Kurtz’s can be identified readily in everyday life. For example, in the workplace, if a Kurtz has employees to manage, he will engage in extreme micromanagement and make belittling comments about those he does not see as on his intellectual plane. A Mr. Kurtz employee will become lazy and apathetic – he knows that he has the intellect to contribute more than he is allowed to be compensated for by the nature of his position. Both left wing and right wing versions of Mr. Kurtz exist: left wing Mr. Kurtz’s will heap their disdain on Republican-voting white proles. A right wing Mr. Kurtz will do likewise with NAMs.

My prediction is that the more the value and applicability of IQ is denied in the name of radical egalitarianism, the more people will develop Mr. Kurtz syndrome. While most high-IQ people will do just fine, of course, the more that IQ’s inherent value is denied, the more people will slip through the cracks due to the resulting systemic inefficiencies and apply their intelligence in ways that damage societal cohesiveness.

My prescription for remedying this situation is to use real IQ tests, and use them often, to help people fit into their appropriate stratum. When highly intelligent people can mingle with other intelligent people, they are much less likely to develop the extreme misanthropy of Mr. Kurtz syndrome, because they are able to connect with the people they interact with. And when the value of IQ is recognized in such a way by the powers-who-decide-such-things, then the higher-IQ types who already do mingle exclusively together (the SWPL crowd) will also give up their support for naive, money-wasting social policies like amnesty for illegal peasant immigrants, prawns, and future Morlocks (-The horror, the horror!).

*note – this post is intended as a F.U.B.U. post, not in response to a certain commenter bent on showing how much damage people with high IQs inflict on society.

More Affirmative Action, Please

Posted by PlanetGrok on March 5, 2010

Much to the suprise of OneSTDV: Another HBD-denialist piece from Newsweek:

Minority Report

American universities are accepting more minorities than ever. Graduating them is another matter.

Well who could have predicted that?

But if the ignorance is not hilarious enough, take a look at the asserted root of all this, and the implicit solution:

But a bigger problem may be that poor high schools often send their students to colleges for which they are, in educators’ jargon, “undermatched”: they could get into more elite, richer schools, but instead go to community colleges and low-rated state schools that lack the resources to help them.

So what we need to do here is prescribe more affirmative action! Let’s make sure LaQuanian (aka “Ca$hmunny”) or Pablo (aka “No Ingles, holmesssss”) don’t go to those community colleges where they won’t graduate – Let’s send them to Harvard where they’ll have the “resources they need”.

Then, once they get there, let’s boost all of their grades by one full letter until the graduation rate is equal to Asian students. Who wouldn’t want to hire one of these fine young gentlemen?

For years private colleges such as Princeton and MIT have had success bringing minorities onto campus in the summer before freshman year to give them a head start on college-level courses. The newer trend is to start recruiting poor and nonwhite students as early as the seventh grade, using innovative tools like hip-hop competitions to identify kids with sophisticated verbal finesse. Such programs can be expensive, of course, but cheap compared with the millions already invested in scholarships and grants for kids who have little chance to graduate without special support.

Jesus Christ. I don’t know about you, but I don’t think a bunch of rappers have any business being within 50 miles of an MIT class, unless there is a nearby prison. Nor will their dexterity in Ebonics assist them in their MIT engineering courses, homie:

Ca$hmunny: Yo what be up wit dat multivariabible calculus, mayne? System dynamism just be too complex fo’ me. Prof Weisenburg be trippin too, wheneva I acks a question.

Pablo: Si

Ca$hmunny: Giving me awl dese F’s an’ shit. I’m finna battle dis fool next time I see him. Werd

Pablo: Si

Me: *Sigh*

Obsidian: “Pull ya pants UP, grimey brothas, put on some AXE products, and let me show you the way to Muhammed”

(sorry, couldn’t resist)

These articles make you wonder what goes on in the minds of delusional liberal creationists. I mean, even before I encountered HBD, I wasn’t that naive.
