A k-selected tropical race?
..the gene persisted because, contrary to popular belief, East Asians from thousands of years ago enjoyed a relatively humid climate, and this gene kept them from overheating due to the abundance of sweat glands it generated.
Opponents of this thesis would point to certain aspects of the East Asian/Chinese phenotype, including the so-called “k-selected” life history pattern, which they aver to be evidence of an “arctic” origin. That can be answered as follows.
First, the flat faces of East Asians, which “just so” stories ascribe to a selective advantage in “the cold, windy north” can be just as easily explained by sexual selection and/.or by the process of neoteny. The epicanthic fold is just as easily explained by sexual selection as by “protection from snow glare.”
What about behavioral k-selection and the alleged high-IQ? Note the theory that capital punishment in Europe selected against violent men and selected for more law-abiding people. Very well. Let’s consider how a similar process could have worked in the Far East. China has long been unified, with various permutations of centralized leadership and the “emperor system,” and thus there has long been selective pressure for a more docile, law-abiding, conformist, and k-selected people. Domestication in animals is known to result in neoteny; the same applies here, as the highly domesticated tropical Chinese become relatively neotenic, coupled to an almost non-existent sexual dimorphism. Selective pressure for intelligence was a consequence of the necessity of administering the centralized nation with its large population. Large scale rice farming (rice being rather tropical, no?) also necessitated intelligence and cooperation.
One can imagine sub-Saharan Africa under a single leader, demanding absolute obedience, and requiring able administrators; the same selective pressures would have occurred there.
Other East Asians followed the Chinese model and/or were assimilated into Chinese genetic patterns – China being so much larger in population than neighboring lands, the gene flow was undoubtedly mostly from China outwards.
Thus, an EXTREME TROPICAL PEOPLE like the East Asians, with the Chinese as the archetype, became modified so as to exhibit some patterns of phenotype/behavior unlike the typical tropical pattern. Some is not all, or even most. The underlying East Asian racial identity is still tropical; thus, they always revert to kind, as shown in the current coronavirus crisis.
By the way, speaking of neoteny, increased neoteny in East Asians supports the contention that the “yellow fever” fetish has its roots in part in sublimated pedophilia – hence, the omega White males admire Asian females for having child-like phenotypes. Is this why one proponent of “yellow fever” is on record as stating that he doesn’t understand why possession of child pornography should be a crime?
The tropical nature of the Chinese is one reason why China is the natural destination for mass Black African migration.
The future of China is pictured here. That is – that must be – the long-term, ultimate outcome of the natural and desirable amalgamation of the Chinese and Black Africans.
We must, absolutely must, fight for the day when the entire population of China looks like that individual and has a similar racial ancestry. That is the bright future for China that every right-thinking, progressive Chinese should support, strive for, and fight for. Only a hate-filled Chinese bigot would oppose the free flow of Black Africans into China from Africa and the peaceful, natural, and reinvigorating merger of the two races.
