Amnesty report seems to be shocked Nordic countries have high rates of rape even though they are renowned for gender equality

It is almost as if some people in their country have no regard for gender equality or something…  Via DailyMail:

Nordic countries including Sweden and Denmark have ‘shockingly high levels of rape’ despite being renowned for gender equality, Amnesty report says

Rights group Amnesty International has accused four Nordic countries renowned as bastions of gender equality of having ‘shockingly high levels of rape’.

Investigators looked at rape cases in Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden and said flawed legislation, harmful myths and gender stereotypes had resulted in ‘endemic impunity’ for perpetrators.

Amnesty said victims were routinely being failed by investigators thanks to inconsistent techniques and delays in processing evidence.

The report said: ‘It is a paradox that Nordic countries, which have strong records of upholding gender equality, suffer shockingly high levels of rape.’

This really wouldn’t be a paradox to them at all if they were willing to do some actual, honest, truthful, reporting.  One image sums it up:

There it is.  Done.  African and Middle Eastern refugees simply to not abide by the gender equality standard Sweden so desperately wants to laud that they have.  Islam is not exactly known for its championing of gender equality either.  And as much as they want it to be so, the dirt is not magic.  Arriving in Sweden does not make them magically Swedish in their values.  And therein lies the tragedy.  Instead of facing the uncomfortable truth that Nordic countries refugee policies are fundamentally ruining the native population and their values, they are afraid to point fingers and would rather scratch their heads wondering at the “paradox”.  Quite literally, they would rather go on allowing their women (and often children) to be raped than risk being called racist or an Islamophobe or anything else.  Yet somehow people who point out the fact that it is most certainly correlated to the larger numbers of refugees pouring into the country who are the ones who are called the bad guys even though we care far more than they do about preserving the safety of native Nordic populations.  Imagine how much could actually get done if governments and people just TOLD THE TRUTH.

Which is it guys?

A meme is worth a thousand words.  Via Breitbart:

Wednesday MSNBC played a clip of 2020 Democratic presidential primary candidate Beto O’Rourke at the Nation Action Network’s convention.

O’Rourke was asked if he would sign Sheila Jackson Lee’s bill which would consider reparations proposals for Africans-Americans.

O’Rourke said, “Yes. Civil rights are not just those victories that began with at the outset of my comments, but the injustices that have been visited and continue to be visited on people. We will never get the change that we need to live up to the promise of this country. So absolutely, I would sign that into law.”

If genetics don’t matter…

Then why is it whites systematically beat out hispanics and blacks across the board in this particular arena?

U.S. racial and ethnic groups vary significantly in their knowledge of science-related issues, according to a new Pew Research Center surveythat quizzed Americans about subjects ranging from life and physical sciences to numeracy and chart reading.

About half of whites (48%) got at least nine of 11 questions correct. In comparison, much smaller shares of Hispanics (23%) and blacks (9%) correctly answered at least nine of the questions.

On average, whites got 7.6 questions correct while Hispanics got 5.1 and blacks 3.7. English-speaking Asians got an average of 7.0 correct answers, but it’s important to note the survey was only conducted in English and Spanish. (Asians are less likely than whites and blacks, but not Hispanics, to be proficient in English.)

The poll is careful to point out that whites and blacks only include non-Hispanic.  Given the attacks on the educational system over the years this cannot be simply attributed to which school one or the other went to; most don’t really  have a choice anymore.

And it can’t really be a fluke if whites perform the best across the board.

People ask why this matters?  “Doesn’t this only fan the flames of hatred and racism?”  No, not at all.  We already know science is dealing with a reproducibility crisis of massive proportions, partially attributed to the fact that scientists are often times not honest at all about the research they are performing.  And rather than face the questions head on and honestly, to garner honest results and potentially enact real, positive, changes to the system, we cover our eyes, block our ears, and pretend that that there’s nothing there.  People are perfectly willing to accept that some races are taller than others and some are faster than others, but the minute you suggest maybe there’s a difference in intelligence as well, everyone freaks out.

Facing the matter head on could yield better ways of educating our children and putting them in environments for them to excel and reach a higher potential of their overall ability.  Treating everyone as if everyone has the exact same capacity and skills is not only ineffective, it is cruel.  And artificially inflating scores or grading on a curve to control how many of which race gets into a particular school is particularly racist.  The actual African-American who is genuinely gifted intellectually is forever questioned whether s/he got in on his/her own merit or if s/he was given a boost.  Completely unfair to those individuals.

People need to learn that there is a difference between the macro and the micro.  It is a fact that on average, east-Asians have a higher IQ than whites.  That is the macro.  That doesn’t mean there aren’t whites who are smarter than some east-Asians; of course there are.  That is also why you should treat people on a per-individual basis.  But to pretend that on the whole we can’t reliably measure and predict on the macro is not only patently absurd, it prevents from ever enacting beneficial change for fear of hurting feelings or some other nonsense.  Then again, in a multicultural society where every group will raise hell anytime anything comes out about them they do not like, what can you really expect?
